Catechist abducted as terrorists attack Taraba Catholic church
Terrorists kidnapped a priest from St. Agnes Catholic Church, Gassol Local Government Area in Taraba State on Sunday night August 14.
The Parish Priest of St. Agnes Parish Rev Fr. Lawrence Awua, a priest from Nigeria, said to Punch that terrorists entered the church and started shooting at 9:58 pm.
“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.”
