About St. Paul's Catholic Mission, Ahule

Father Akegh was the first priest to celebrate mass for the people of God in Logo 1 that year. In 1979, Father Albert Aondoana (of blessed memory) was posted to Ikpayongo. He was working with Father Geoffrey Tor lortyer (also of blessed memory). Father lortyer was overseeing the affairs of St. Paul's and other churches. In 1994, St. Paul's Catholic Church, Ahule was made the Zonal headquarters of Akpen zone.
