Bandits have killed a Catholic priest, Rev. Fr. Alphonsus Bello and seized Rev. Fr. Joe Keke from St. Vincent Ferrer Catholic Church Malumfashi, Katsina state.
A parishioner, who simply identified himself as Dominic said the armed men struck around 11pm on Thursday, shooting their way to where their targets were.
Bello reportedly resisted abduction but the armed men overpowered him and took him away alongside an elderly priest identified as Rev Father Joe Keke.
Bello’s corpse was found Friday morning.
