RCCG Pastor Shot, Butchered In Borno

The killing of a Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) pastor by the Boko Haram sect in troubled Borno state has thrown the church into mourning and apprehension.

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 pastors 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.

Speaking from Dille on Friday, Jacob Mamza narrated how the pastor was killed in the attack which claimed 45 lives. He said 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.

Pastor Taiwo was running to a neighbours house and it was in the course of his fleeing that he was shot in the head and the chest and the insurgent equally came to butcher him to make sure that he was dead.
