APGA Strikes APC over beating of Catholic Arch-Bishop

The All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA has reacted to an attack on the Archbishop of Owerri Diocese, Anthony Obinna by members of the All Progressives Congress, APC.

Arch Bishop Obinna was assaulted by members of the ruling party during a burial ceremony last Weekend.

In a press statement, signed by its spokesman, Dr. George Nkwoji, APGA stated;

“It is an abomination to take wild dogs in human flesh, to church. It was sacrilegious to unleash same on a priest while delivering sermon.

As a drowning man, the APC is willing to clutch on anything within it’s reach to remain afloat, including resort to brutality against personal and perceived enemies.

To have attacked the Archbishop is indeed most unfortunate and intolerable in any civilized clime. Imo people are consequently implored to be on the alert, for such further occurrences.”
