A pastor of the Evangelical Church of West Africa (ECWA) and two others were killed by terrorists in Majure village, Munya Local Government Area of Niger State.

The Nation gathered that over 50 terrorists invaded the community on motorcycles, causing panic by firing shots and triggering a stampede.

The terrorists also abducted 20 people, mostly women and children, and transported them to an unknown destination in a Sharon bus.

The victims were said to have been killed when they were working on their farms which were close to the church.

An eyewitness disclosed that a Pastor of another church, his wife, and his child were missing which gives the suspicion that they could have been killed or kidnapped.

The Niger state Secretary of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Pastor Raphael Opawoye confirmed the death of the two church members.

Calls made to get confirmation of the incident from the Local Government Council Chairman Alhaji Aminu Najume and the Niger State Police were not successful as their numbers were not reachable.
