The Umuhuo, Ikwerrede-Awara community, in the Ohaji/Egbema Local Government Area of Imo State was thrown into mourning on Monday after the lifeless body of a pastor, Friday Isinwa, of Seven Days Church of God was found near a pipeline after a two-day search by villagers.

Sources in the community was told that the late Isinwa, a father of four, who was equally a farmer, had gone to one of his farms to harvest cassava when he was waylaid by suspected cult members, who murdered him after striping him naked.

Somalis living in the United States under protected status have been given permission by the Trump administration to remain in the country for at least another 18 months, because of ongoing violence in the North African nation.

At least 500 Somalis in the United States with Temporary Protected Status will be able to re-register for an extension of their status through March 17, 2020, according to a Thursday statement from the Department of Homeland Security. The status grants beneficiaries the ability to legally work while they are in the United States.
