6 seminarians killed in Nigeria

Vincent cm sealThe Provincial Secretary, Nigeria wrote to the Superior General with the sad news that six seminarians were killed in Nigeria.

Dear Fr. Gregory,

Greetings of love and peace from Enugu. I write on behalf of my Visitor- Fr. Cyril Mbata,CM to inform you of the SUDDEN DEATH of six of our Seminarians this morning. All six were Philosophy students. They were on their way to Enugu for an encounter with the Theology students, a usual holiday program for our scholastics.

It’s sad to say that it occurred less than 20 minutes to the Community House. Their remains have been deposited in the mortuary. The Names of the students are:


At the moment, 10 are receiving treatment in the hospital and are doing well. The report we got had it that one of the back tyres got burst and the car somersaulted severally.

Fraternally yours in St. Vincent,
Joachin U. Nwaorgu,CM
Provincial Secretary

Dear Joaquin,
Thank you for this very, very sad news. May these young men rest in
peace. My prayers for their families and the CM. I will also keep the
other young men who are recovering in my prayers.

    What a sad news, Death why? Is a truism because for a christain death slams shut the door of ephemeral existence and keeps ajar dt of eternity. Rest in peace my brother in the lord

    May God almighty show the souls of these young, departed Vincentians merciful judgement. My prayers and thoughts go out to their families, confrères, and all bereaved by this accident. To the ones at the hospital, may God bless them with quick recovery.
