Suspected terrorists on Sunday, 15th January burnt to death the Priest of St. Peters and Paul Catholic Church in Kafin-koro in Paikoro Local Government Area of Niger State, Rev Father Isaac Achi. Achi was killed at his residence at about 3a.m.
However, Pope Francis who is the head of the Catholic Church, the bishop of Rome and sovereign of the Vatican City State reacted to the incident via a post on his official Twitter page. You said, “I ask all of you to join me in prayer for Father Isaac Achi, of the Diocese of Minna in northern Nigeria who was killed last Sunday in a attack on his rectory. So many Christians continue to be the target of violence. Let us pray together for them.
It is a very sad news but the only thing we can do is to pray. The persecution on Christians is increasing on a daily basis I wish you don’t get tired of praying. May the will of God be done.
