Terrorists on Sunday night attacked Ikulu Fari, a Catholic parish located in Chawai, in the Kauru Local Government Area of Kaduna State.
The terrorists kidnapped the parish priest, Rev Fr Joseph Shekari, and killed a yet-to-be-identified cook working in the parish house during the attack.
The cook was killed when the marauders stormed the place at 11:30pm on Sunday.
The Paramount Chief of the Chawai Chiefdom, Yahaha Mohammed, confirmed the incident to The PUNCH on Monday.
He said, “I am calling on the security agencies to swing into action and ensure the safe returned of the cleric.
“Even though we’re yet to established any contact with the abductors, we’re confident he would return safe and sound.”
Also, an eyewitness, Yohanna Madaki, who described the incident as “very devastating”, said the abductors also went away with N2 million cash that was realised from a thanksgiving service and other valuables.
The cook that was shot dead was a student of a Government Secondary School, Kizakoro in the chiefdom.(Punch)
