“This is a sad moment, for a priest to be killed in such a way means we are not all safe, these terrorists have (made us) lose themselves, and drastic action is needed to end this ongoing carnage,” he said.

Meanwhile, the youth wing of the Christian Association of Nigeria (YOWICAN) described the parish house burning and killing of Pastor Isaac Achi as a pure terrorist attack aimed at wiping out the entire Christian community in Nigeria.

“Those behind this senseless killing and burning of the parish house must be brought to justice.”
