St Stephen’s Church youth mourn slain Major Churchill Orji


By: Tony Okafor

St Stephen’s Anglican Church, Agulu, was thrown into frenzy of sorrow and weeping on Monday following the sad news of the killing of one of her own, Major Churchill Chinedu Orji, by unknown gunmen in Azia, in the Ihiala Local Government Area of Anambra State.

The entire Agulu community also saw his demise as a rude shock and great loss to the town.

Hear them:

St. Stephen’s Youth Action Movement (SS-YAMA) mourns Major CC Orji.

Good evening beloved in Christ, Our Major CC Orji is gone. The news of sad demise of a Golden Son of Agulu, Major Churchill Chinedu Orji is indeed a Tragidy. Major died gallantly while serving his father’s land. Quite unfortunate.

The Church, Agulu Community and the entire State have lost a Golden Son in the cold hands of death. Major CC Orji is very committed to the development of Our dear church and our Community.

The history of the Church will not forget easily the effort and commitment of Major CC Orji during the *Roofing of St. Stephen’s Church Building* particularly, at the time when the environment was experiencing the most heat.

*The Sunday 26th day of December, 2010* was remarkably adored for bringing together St. Stephen’s *Young men* who taught it wise that our uncompleted Church building which has stayed so long needed to be roofed.
