Suspected hoodlums attacked the priest in his parsonage for allegedly inviting soldiers to secure the mission school, where he serves as the principal.Michael Abattam, police spokesperson in the state said the command is yet to get such report.“You are just informing me about this incident. The command will investigate the matter and make our stand known in no distant time,”.

The development comes amid the sit-at-home order by the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), which has grounded activities in parts of the south-east.Some private school owners in Imo had expressed concern that the sit-at-home order has disrupted their scheduled resumption of school activities.IPOB had, on July 30, ordered a sit-at-home in the south-east every Monday until Nnamdi Kanu, its leader, is released from the custody of the Department of State Services (DSS).Although the group had later announced a suspension of the order, there have been attacks in parts of the south-east allegedly linked to enforcement of the directive.
