Reverend Father Isaac Achi of Saint Peter and Paul Catholic Church was burned to death by bandits during an early Sunday morning attack on the Kafin Koro Community in the Paikoro Local Government Area of Niger State.
According to reports, the intruders entered the community around one in the morning and began intermittently firing as they made their way to the Rev. Father’s hilltop home.
Paul, a community member, claims that the robbers split into two groups. While some of them went to the Catholic priest’s official residence, others stayed in the town shooting to avoid getting in the way.
According to Paul, the robbers set the building on fire and waited until they could no longer assess the late Achi’s residence after a considerable amount of time had passed before doing so with him inside.
It was said that the Divisional Police Officer had been located, but he was unable to reach Achi before he passed away.
