Gunmen have killed the two sons of Daniel Umaru, a pastor of the Ekklesiyar Yan’uwa Njairi Nigeria (EYN), also known as the Church of the Brethren, in Mubi LGA of Adamawa state.

The gunmen also shot the pastor and abducted his 13-year-old daughter.

The pastor is said to be recuperating at the hospital.

Humwashi Wonosikou, press secretary to Ahmadu Fintiri, the Adamawa governor, confirmed the incident in a statement on Thursday.

“The perpetrators of this heinous act must be brought to justice. And we have offered our full support to the security agencies to do so.”

While condoling the victims’ families and loved ones, and the church, Fintiri directed security agencies to scale up intelligence and fish out the criminals.
