Bandits attack and kill a pastor while he is visiting his colleague in Niger.
Pastor Jeremiah Ibrahim, a pastor who served at ECWA Gospel Kubwa, Kuta, has died.
The priest was killed by gunmen in the village of Chukuba in the Shiroro local government area in Niger state.
This happened after an attack by armed bandits in the village of Chukuba.
The people learned that the pastor had gone to check on his farm in Chukuba, and decided to visit their colleague, who was the pastor of Chukuba, where he was attacked and killed.
The bandits also kidnapped the wife of the Chukuba resident pastor and other members of the community, who are still in the custody of the bandits.
The deceased was buried Friday in his hometown of Garatu, in the Boso local government area of Niger.
It was reported that bandits also abducted 20 people on Friday in Kukoki, Bassa / Kukoki, in the Shirookal local government area in Niger state.
Sources told The Nation that terrorists stormed the area in the usual large numbers, well armed with sophisticated weapons.
La Fonte said that while everyone was trying to take the place of the bandits, the bandits took their victims by force.
It also became known that many properties were looted, and community residents fled the area, fearing another attack.
Attempts to elicit a police response were unsuccessful, as several calls made to the public relations officer, ASP Abiodun Wasiou, went unanswered.
