Reverend Father Isaac Achi of St. Peters and Paul Catholic Church in Kafin-Koro, Paikoro Local Government Area of Niger State, who was burnt to death by gunmen, has been buried amid tears.
He was laid to rest at the St Michael Catholic Cemetery in Bosso, Local Government Areas of the state.
Over 500 Catholic priests from within and outside Nigeria were at St Michael’s Catholic Cathedral Church in Minna to pay their last respect to the late cleric.
Suspected bandits broke the wall of the priest’s house and set ablaze the deceased, while his assistant, Fr. Collins was shot but escaped death narrowly.
Reverend Father Achi was the CAN coordinator of Paikoro Local Government Area, and the Dean and Parish Priest of St. Peter and Paul Catholic Church, Kaffin-Koro in Minna Diocese.
