Gunmen from hell have killed a Catholic Priest, Revd. Father David Tanko and dumped his corpse inside his car before setting the car ablaze.
The sad incident which occurred at Kufai Amadu in Takum local government area of the state, happened less than 24 hours after gunman raided villages in Taraba State and killed two persons.
Reports said the cleric was on his way to Takum for a peace meeting with his fellow clergymen on how to resolve the lingering Tiv, Jukun crisis when he was killed.
The chairman of the council, Shiban Tikari who confirmed the incident, disclosed that after killing him, the attackers set fire him and his car on fire.
Tikari identified the late Father Tanko an indigene of Wukari local government area of the state.
He alleged that the attack was carried out by Tiv militias. He also blamed several other attacks that have claimed lives and property in southern Taraba on the Tiv militias, stressing that the reason for the attacks is still unknown.
