The Catechist of St. Monica Catholic Church, Ikulu-Pari, in Chawai Chiefdom of Kauru Local Government, Kaduna State, Mr Kefas Ishaya, has been abducted by unknown gunmen.

The gunmen according to a source,  abducted the Catechist when they could not get his boss, Rev Fr Joseph Shekari.

Rev Fr Joseph Shekari, was not at his residence when the attack occurred, but had travelled out of the village.

Mr Sunday Bage, the chairman of Ikuly zone of the parish confirmed that the abductors came around 9.30 p.m on Thursday January 19 and dragged the Catechist into the bush.

He said the gunmen when they invaded the area, shot sporadically, moving through the church, the school and the priest’s residence in search of the Rev Father.

The gunmen, according to him, broke into the priest’s house through the fence, adding that they used stones and bullets to break the main door of the house.

He lamented that the incident was devastating, saying that it is a very sad situation as they (gunmen) dragged Catechist on the ground like a dog.
