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.
“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.”
