While speaking with journalists in Enugu, the diocese’s communications director, Benjamin Achi, accused the pastors of being behind the attacks, including on Thursday in which one of the priests was killed.

“The insecurity rate has gotten out of hand, and the government should live up to the circumstances,” he said. “Fulani pastors have been killing people repeatedly. Yesterday’s incident makes him the third priest attacked in recent months,” he said.
