We just received the news of Rev. Joseph Kura, Pastor serving in ECWA church Obi, in Obi LGA of Nasarawa state. He was attacked and brutally murdered by Fulani Herds Men on 30th June, 2016. Until his murder he was the CAN chairman of the Obi LGA.
Our family was sleeping. At about 12am in the middle of the night, my sister started hearing the sound of guns. She was telling me that she heard the sound of guns and I now told her that she should leave me alone that it’s our father that is going for patrol outside - because my father was a member of vigilante group - so I assumed he was the one that was shooting, but my sister told me that this shooting is too serious so I told her to wait, let me see.
