Catholic Priest Narrates How Armed Robbers begged him for Forgiveness while Robbing Him

Catholic priest narrated how armed robbers begged him for forgiveness while robbing him in the early hours of 2am in the morning at St. Augustine’s Parish house, Demekpe in Makurdi, Nigeria.

Solomon Ukeyima, the Parish Priest of St. Augustine Parish, Demekpe, in Makurdi, has said that one of the armed robbers that invaded the Parish House kept begging for forgiveness after picking each item in the house.

“The robbers were calm throughout the operation. They kept begging for forgiveness. They did that throughout the period of the robbery,” Mr Ukeyima told the News Agency of Nigeira (NAN) in a telephone interview on Monday.

“I love the confidence and the calmness in them. One of them, for anything he picked, he would say forgive us Father,” he added.

He said that the robbers invaded the Parish House around 2 a.m. on Monday and carted away several valuables.

“The robbers demanded for N5 million or dollars from me, but I told them that I don’t have that kind of money.

“I told them what I had and gave that to them,” he said.

He said that the robbers appeared relaxed throughout the operation that lasted less than one hour, and spoke good English.

He said that the robbers broke into his bedroom having scaled the perimeter fence to the Parish House and the window to the Priest’s parlour.

According to him, they made away with proceeds of thanksgiving by four families, offertory, phones, selected footwears, sound system and some drinks, amongst others.

However an interview with the Police Command in Benue state confirmed the incident and pledged to apprehend the criminals involved.

“The incident has been reported to us and we have begun investigation,” Catherine Anene, the command’s Public Relations Officer.
