Gunmen on Sunday morning  attacked an ECWA church in Okedayo – Kabba. 

The church is situated along the Expressway of Kabba – Okene road.

According to a report by Vanguard, the assailants killed one of the church members and abducted three persons.

The abductors were said to have attacked the church while the service was still ongoing.

The attack comes barely seven days after the prison attack in the Federal minimum correctional centre and abducted three poultry farmers on their farm in the area. 

The gunmen shot dead two military men keeping a guide on the road before attacking the centre and setting all the prisoners free.

However, about 126 of the inmates have been rearrested, while an unspecified number voluntarily returned.

The Kogi State Government however accused politicians of being responsible for some security breaches in the state, including the attack at the Kabba Correctional Centre.
