Some suspected gunmen, on Sunday night, attacked St. Agnes Catholic Church in the Gassol Local Government Area of Taraba State and abducted a catechist.
It was gathered that the terrorists invaded the church and began shooting at 9:58 pm.
A Priest in the Parish who gave an account of the incident said, “I was in the room when the attackers came and started shooting sporadically and hitting objects on my door.
“I never responded and they probably thought I was not around.
“My catechist, who was in the church heard what was happening in the Parish House and was coming towards the house when they abducted him.”
Similarly, on Saturday afternoon, gunmen shot one Mr. Tavershima Faga in Borno-kurku, Bali local government area of the state.
He was returning from a church service on a motorcycle when he was shot and left in his pool of blood.
