Taraba Church Attack: Gunmen Kill RCCN Members, 15 Missing, Dozen Hospitalized



 

No fewer than three members of the Reformed Church of Christ In
Nigeria (RCCN) have been feared killed in the latest attack on a
church by gunmen identified as bandits in Takum, Taraba State, a
source says.

The source told SaharaReporters this morning (Monday): “We lost three
members of our church alone in the attack. A retired school principal,
an elderly woman, and a single middle-aged lady.

“These are the corpses we identified immediately because there are a
dozen others hospitalized with fatal wounds from gunshots.

“Just as there are about 15 people who are missing as of now (Monday morning).

“You know, we are in the church when we heard gunshots. Initially, we
thought soldiers were the ones firing the shots.

“But in the twinkling of an eye they (gunmen) they had come to the
church shooting at worshippers.”

Meanwhile, the spokesman for the police in Taraba State, David Misal,
claimed that “from our records, four people were killed and all of
them (are) on the side of the attackers”.

Misal, however, admitted: “We’re expecting an update from Takum and
possibly there may be a rise in the number casualties, including
fatalities. We’ll communicate (that) to you.”
