A pastor of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) have been killed by the Boko Haram sect in troubled Borno state.
The pastor, Taiwo Dokun was killed in the insurgents attack on Dille village in Askira-Uba local government area of the state on Monday.
According to some members of RCCG who spoke to journalists in Maiduguri, the whereabouts of the late pastor’s wife and three children is not yet known.
“The family could have been abducted by the insurgents who took away many of the residents of the town as the family members were not found since the attack and have not called any one.
“Though their residence was completely razed by the insurgents, their corpses were not found in the debris,” one of the church members who preferred anonymity told journalists.
“The pastor was in his house at about 6am when the insurgents attacked the village, his house was surrounded by the hoodlums and while attempting to run he was shot,” Jacob Mamza said, narrating how the pastor was killed in the attack which claimed 45 lives.
