It was a sad day for the people of Igbudu community in Warri South Local Government Area of Delta state as they woke up to the sad news, that their Chief priest, Victor Alawuru, has been killed for allegedly impregnating a Muslim girl.
According to reports, the deceased got a Muslim girl pregnant and the girl’s parents and siblings were angry because they didn’t approve their relationship due to religious differences.
The deceased never rejected the pregnancy and stood by girl hoping she gives birth to his children.
Feeling that the lady has brought shame to the family, they took her back to her hometown and tried several times to abort the baby but to no avail.
So they brought her back and rejected her, and she was staying with the deceased. She said that as long as Christian girls can get pregnant for Muslim men, why can’t she get pregnant for a Christian man.
A source said Mr Victor had attended a festival in a street closed to where he lived, but on his way, he was ambushed by allegedly Hausa hoodlums who felt that Victor has rubbed shame on them and their religion by impregnating their Muslim sister.
Another source said it was the girl’s brother that allegedly stabbed the deceased for bringing shame to their family.
The ever busy Igbudu market was forcefully closed as sellers scrabbled for safety as irate Urhobo youths were on rampage, wanting to avenge the death of their son, brother and their chief priest; and it resulted in a battle between the Urhobo and Hausa community in the area.
Another source claimed that cult groups have taken over the fight and went on, to reveal that during the lockdown, there was a battle, that claimed the life of the younger brother of the deceased and this one that happened really made the community angry.
At the Warri Area Police Command, a source revealed that the parents of the girl commanded her to abort the pregnancy but she declined.
The source said;
“They said a Hausa girl was pregnant for him and the parents wanted her to terminate the pregnancy but she ran to the police station.
So the girl said Christian girls do get pregnant for Muslims so why can’t she? And she decided to keep the pregnancy.
They were having a festival in that area and the said chief priest was passing. They said some Hausa boys now pointed that ‘look at the man that brought disgrace (impregnating the Hausa girl) to us’ and one of them stabbed him to death,” the police source disclosed.
When asked if the deceased rejected the pregnancy, the police said he never did.
He continued that the girl’s family said their daughter shouldn’t have gotten pregnant for a non-Muslim”.
Onome Onovwakpoyeya, the state police command spokesperson, confirmed that chief priest was murdered by alleged Hausa hoodlums.
He said that everywhere is under control as security operatives are patrolling the area and stated that Mr Victor Alawuru wasn’t murdered because he was a Chiefpriest.
