LAGOS OCTOBER 19TH(URHOBOTODAY)-An 80-year-old Italian missionary, Rev. Sr. Marcelina Alfra, popularly referred to as Regina Mundi, was reportedly attacked and murdered by unknown gunmen in Ogwashi-Uku, in Aniocha South Local Government Area of Delta State.
Rev Sr Alfra, had lived in Ogwashi-Uku for about 50 years doing philanthropic and humanitarian works and was attacked by hoodlums who got into the house through the roof and slashed her with machetes in the head. She was rushed to the University of Benin Teaching Hospital where she died.
Group under the aegis of Anioma Voice Worldwide Foundation in a statement signed by Comrade Akamesike Emmanuel Okonne, Chief Messenger of Anioma Voice Worldwide Foundation, Comrade Victor Kpamiose, National Public Relations Messenger and Comrade Geoffrey Elunor National General Messenger condemned the gruesome and dastardly act of murder of this humble and selfless woman who committed almost all her entire adult life to the service of humanity, especially of Anioma people.
The group called on the relevant authorities particularly the office of the Commissioner of police, Delta state to take action using all necessary crime investigation apparatuses at his disposal to investigate and bring the culprits to book in the shortest possible time.
“We expect that the same urgency of purpose and dispatch that was displayed in solving the kidnap case of Queen Okonjo, the mother of the current Minister of Finance in the same Ogwashi Uku a few months ago will also be employed in this particular case.
“Anioma Voice Worldwide Foundation is appalled at the incessant killings and kidnap of innocent people across Anioma nation and other parts of Delta state and strongly request that those in authority and in charge of security matters in the state, as a matter of necessity, up their efforts to safe guarding the lives and properties of law abiding citizens of the state,” the group advised.
