Catechist abducted as terrorists attack Taraba Catholic church


St. Agnes Catholic Church in Gassol Local Government Area of Taraba State was on Sunday night, August 14, attacked by terrorists who abducted a catechist.


The Parish Priest of St. Agnes Parish, Rev. Fr. Lawrence Awua, told Punch that the terrorists invaded the church and began shooting at 9:58 pm.



Awua 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.”
