Gunmen Invade Church On Christmas Eve, Kill Three Worshipers


LAGOS DECEMBER 26TH (NEWSRANGERS)-Gunmen killed three worshippers during a Christmas Carol service on Sunday night in the Abakaliki Local Government Area of Ebonyi State.

The ugly incident took place at the Immaculate Conception Catholic Church, Nkwegu, Abakaliki.

This was disclosed on Monday by the Catholic Bishop of Abakaliki Diocese, Most Rev. Peter Nworie, during Christmas Service at Saint Theresa Cathedral Church.

He explained that the suspects invaded the church during a vigil mass service, and killed and injured many others.

While condemning the killing of the three worshippers, the clergyman described the incident as sad and disheartening and prayed for the repose of their souls.

Meanwhile, all efforts to get a reaction from Ebonyi State Police Command were fruitless as the command was yet to get a new spokesperson.
