Seventy-year-old bishop murdered by radical extremists in Uganda

A seventy-year-old pastor was killed in Uganda on the 11th of June after a group of radical Muslims stopped him and his wife on their way home from a market.


The seventy-year-old Francis Obo was the senior pastor of Mpingire Pentecostal Revival Church Ministries International in Odapako village Mpingire Sub-County and oversaw seventeen churches across the region, Morning Star News reports.

Muslim extremists confronted him and his wife, Christine Obo. She said one of the men called her husband an “infidel” who drives Muslims to leave Islam and “blaspheme the words of Allah” but “Today Allah has judged you.”

She continued, “Another assailant told me to go away and added, ‘Today, it is a day for your husband.’ As I moved a few meters in a hurry trying to save my life, I heard a little noise and wailing from my husband and realized that his life was in danger.”

When Obo arrived at her home, she was trembling and unable to speak. Her children took her to a hospital, where she regained consciousness the following morning.

The distraught woman told her eldest son to take his siblings and go to the site of the attack.

“Reaching there, they were shocked and fearful as they found a big number of Christians and relatives gathered around the dead body mourning their bishop after being murdered by Muslims,” Obo said.
