Unknown Gunmen Kill 81 Year Old Chief Priest

by on March 15, 2016
The family members of late Pa Clifford Omosom­wan, were still in shock following the death of their fa­ther, the Chief Priest (Ohen-Og­ba) of Aruogba community in Oredo Local government Area of Edo State who was shot dead in his house by unknown gunmen.
The effect of the gunshot which killed Pa Omosomwan on March 3, 2016 was still clearly visible at No1, Omosomwan Street Aruog­ba quarters, new GRA in Benin City with community men and women living in fear over the in­cident.
Pa Omosomwan was said to have been shot through the win­dow when he heard noise and de­cided to inquire what was happen­ing. The bullet was said to have passed his chest out from the back, veered through the door and split at a tenant’s door injuring him in the process.
Pa Omosomwan, who is the eldest in the community, is the second el­der who has so far been murdered. It was further learnt that the same gunmen had in January 2015 mur­dered one Pa Goodluck Uwuma­hongie in his residence after a land dispute ensued among the youths in the Community Development Association, CDA.
It was gathered that the CDA chairman at the time of this land dispute was said to have been be­headed and currently at the mor­tuary waiting to be buried even af­ter the community offered N800, 000 to the family for burial.
Pa Omosomwan, a father of 10 whose great grandchildren are up to 50 was said to have gathered the community elders for an impor­tant meeting on the day he was murdered. The meeting was to dis­cuss the recent happening in the community; little did he know that the next on the list of those to be murdered was him.
He was said to have bought drinks and prepared food during the meeting which ended at 5 pm where all the el­ders left for their various houses.
A list of those to be murdered suddenly surfaced when a partic­ular CDA chairman was beheaded over a year ago with his head yet to be recovered from the assassins.
