A herdsmen attack that killed two priests and at least 15 other worshippers during a Catholic Mass in Nigeria’s Benue State has sparked anger across the country and triggered calls for the president to step down.
Armed gunmen on April 24 attacked St. Ignatius Catholic Church in the state’s Gwer local government area as parishioners gathered for an early morning Mass. The dead include the Revs. Joseph Gor and Feliz Tyolaha.
