Anglican Priest Gruesomely Murdered By Son In Delta

A tragic incident unfolded in Okpare town, Olomu Kingdom, Ughelli South Local Government Area of Delta State, where Anglican priest Rev. Isaac Umurie was brutally killed by his 28-year-old son, Ufuoma Umurie.

The shocking event occurred at approximately 2:00 a.m. on Wednesday, July 3, 2024. Rev. Umurie, who served at St. John’s Anglican Church, Okpare-Olomu, was preparing for retirement when his son attacked and fatally struck him with a machete while he slept.

Following the brutal act, Ufuoma reportedly pursued his mother with the weapon, but she managed to escape unharmed. Sources revealed that Ufuoma had previously made attempts on his father’s life.

“This is the second time Ufuoma has attacked his father. The other time, he beat him, and Okpare-Olomu vigilante held him, but the father pleaded that he should not be taken to the police station. We heard that he is not mentally stable,” a source said. 

“In today’s incident, he hacked the father with a cutlass, burst his skull, and mutilated other parts of his body. The priest has a few years to retire. He was brought closer home because of his retirement before this unfortunate incident.” 

The suspect is currently detained at the Otu-Jeremi Divisional Headquarters of the Delta State Police Command.

SP Bright Edafe, the command’s spokesperson, confirmed the incident, stating that the perpetrator will undergo investigation and face prosecution as appropriate.
