Unknown gunmen reportedly killed a Catholic Priest and a yet-to-be ascertained number of persons in Agu village, Katsina/Ala Local Government Area of Benue.
It was gathered that the gunmen invaded the village at about 10 a.m. on Tuesday, March 30 and launched an attack on St. Paul’s Catholic Church where they killed the priest, Rev. Fr. Fabian Ngugban.
According to SaharaReporters, the gunmen were suspected to be followers of the late notorious militia kingpin, Terwase Akwaza alias Gana, in Benue State.
Source stated that the gunmen invaded the community and were shooting sporadically as well as burning many houses before gunning down the priest. Many others are also feared dead from the attack.
The ugly incident has stirred up tension in the area with many deserting the community for fear of losing their lives.
