A diocese in Nigeria announced that Brother Godwin Eze, a monk who was kidnapped on Oct. 17 alongside two others from the Benedictine monastery in Eruku, was murdered.
In a note shared with ACI Africa on Tuesday, Oct. 24, the administrator of the Diocese of Ilorin, Father Anselm Pendo Lawani, said Eze, who was kidnapped alongside Brother Anthony Eze and Brother Peter Olarewaju, had been brutally murdered.
Other sources said the abductors shot Godwin Eze and threw his body in a river.
Earlier, the diocese had announced the release of Anthony Eze and Olarewaju, who are postulants at the Benedictine monastery, and appealed for prayers for Godwin Eze, a novice at the monastery.
