‘Herdsmen’ invade Catholic seminary, shoot priest
Suspected herdsmen invaded a Catholic seminary in Jalingo, Taraba state, on Monday morning, injuring some priests and students.
Evaristus Bassey, director of Caritas Nigeria, an agency of the Catholic Church, confirmed this to TheCable.
A priest was reportedly shot during the attack while two others were beaten up.
It is the second time in a little over one month that a Catholic establishment will be attacked in the country.
Gunmen suspected to be herdsmen in April killed two priests at St. Ignatius’ Catholic Church, Ayar, Gwer east local government area of Benue state.
The gunmen were said to have opened fire on the worshipers after invading the church.
Some worshipers were also killed in the attack while many sustained injuries.
The deceased priests were identified as Joseph Gor and Felix Tyolaha.
Pope Francis and US President Donald Trump are among the global personalities who have condemned the recent spate of attacks on Christians in Nigeria.
