Gunmen invade church in Kogi, kill one, abduct three others

Gunmen on Sunday invaded the Evangelical Church Winning All, (ECWA), Kabba, Kogi State, killing one person and abducting three others.

The gunmen struck during Sunday service at ECWA, Kabba-Bunu Local Government Area, LGA, of Kogi State.

The incident took place along Kabba-Okene express road in Okedayo Kabba, throwing other worshippers and the community into confusion.

It was reliably gathered that the gunmen fully armed with AK-47 numbering five invaded the church at about 8.00am on Sunday shooting sporadically as they made their way into the church premises.

The source disclosed further that some worshipers took cover while others in an attempt to escape were kidnapped.

The dead victim was on his way to the church when he encountered the gunmen, who instantly opened fire on him.

“The gunshots left members confused, scamper for safety, with the gunmen killing one and taking away three,” a source said.

The man that was killed was identified as the Deputy Chief Security Officer of a higher institution in the area.

Efforts to reach out to the Police Public Relations Officer, DSP William Ayah proved difficult as he was said to be in church.
