Exactly two weeks after terrorists attacked St. Francis Catholic Church, Owo, Ondo State in the Southwest region of Nigeria, terrorists on Sunday attacked another Catholic Church in Kaduna State in the North-West region of the country.
The armed terrorists invaded St. Moses Catholic Church in Robuh, Unguwan Aku, Kajuru Local Government Area of the state as the church was rounding off its first mass.
The terrorists killed three worshippers and abducted many others.
Several others sustained various degrees of injuries.
According to LEADERSHIP, the terrorists stormed the church in large numbers and opened fire on the worshippers, during which three persons were killed before they kidnapped a yet-to-be-confirmed number of worshippers.
The report noted that one of the victims was rushed to St. Gerald Catholic Hospital in the state.
The Sunday, June 5 attack on St. Francis Catholic Church in Owo, Ondo state left no fewer than 40 congregants dead and several others injured.
