Gunmen have killed a pastor of the Evangelical Church of West Africa, Reverend Silas Ali, in Zango Kataf Local Government Area of Kaduna State.
The deceased, who until his death was the presiding Pastor of ECWA church in Kibori-Asha Awuce in Zango Kataf, was said to have departed for Kafanchan on Saturday.
Nothing was heard of him until his corpse was found by a search party early on Sunday at Kibori community, near Asha-Awuce, where he was apparently attacked and macheted to death.
The Kaduna State Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, who confirmed the incident, said security agencies are conducting investigations in the general area with a view to arresting those behind the dastardly act.
