Bandit Terrorists Kill Catholic Priest In Kaduna

A Catholic priest, Rev Fr. Vitus Borogo, has been killed by gunmen suspected to be terrorists in Kaduna State.

Ezenwoko’s Blog reports that the gunmen had raided Prison Farm, Kujama, along Kaduna-Kachia Road before murdering the cleric.

Rev Fr. Borogo’s death was confirmed in a statement by Rev Fr Christian Emmanuel of the Catholic Secretariat of Nigeria.

Borogo, 50, was Chaplain of the Catholic Community of the Kaduna State Polytechnic and the Chairman of the Nigerian Catholic Diocesan Priests Association (NCDPA), Kaduna Chapter.

The statement reads: ”It is with a heavy heart, but with total submission to the will of God that we announce the death of Rev. Fr. Vitus Borogo, which sad event took place today, at Prison Farm, Kujama, along Kaduna-Kachia Road, after a raid on the farm by terrorists. Until his death, Fr Vitus (aged 50) was the Chaplain of the Catholic Community of the Kaduna State Polytechnic and the Chairman of the Nigerian Catholic Diocesan Priests Association (NCDPA) Kaduna Chapter.  

“Most Rev. Matthew Man-Oso Ndagoso, the Catholic Archbishop of Kaduna, commiserates with the immediate family, the NFCS Family of Kaduna Polytechnic, and indeed the entire Kaduna Polytechnic Community; and assures them of his fraternal closeness and prayers.

“Details of his funeral arrangement will be announced as soon as possible. Meanwhile, we commit his soul to the maternal intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary and call on all men and women of goodwill to continue to pray for the peaceful repose of his soul and for the consolation of his bereaved family, especially his mother.”
