Gunmen on Thursday murdered a pastor in Nigeria’s Nasarawa state. Locals have accused militant Fulani herdsmen of carrying out the attack as similar killings have been on the rise in the region.
The Rev. Kura Joseph, 50, served as a pastor with the Evangelical Church Winning All (ECWA) and also as the chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) in Nasarawa’s Obi local government. Numan Umaru Ismalia, the regional spokesman with the Nigeria Police Force, said two gunmen attacked Kura.
