Gunmen attack ECWA Church in Kogi, kill one, abduct two

Unknown gunmen have attacked ECWA church in Kogi State, killed one person and kidnapped two others.

The Church is located at Okadayo-Kabba, along Okene road, in Kogi State.

The attack is coming barely few days after a jailbreak at the Federal minimum correctional centre located in Kabba and the abduction of three poultry farmers in their farm, all in the same area.

DAILY POST gathered that the yet to be identified gunmen opened fire on the worshippers as church service was going on, killing one person on the spot.

 An eyewitness, who pleaded anonymity, said two other person who were shot are currently receiving treatment in an undisclosed hospital.

According to him, the Pioneer Provost of College of Education Technical Kabba, Chief J.O.T Oshadumo and one other were kidnapped, while his wife and some students sustained gun shot wounds.

The Chairman of Kabba-Bunu Local Government, Moses Olorunleke who confirmed this to DAILY POST, said details of the attack would be made public soon.

Efforts to get more information from the Police Public Relations Officer, DSP William Aya, proved difficult as he was said to be in church.
