The Police Command in Kogi, on Monday, confirmed the killing of two persons in an attack on worshippers in a Church by gunmen at Felele Quarters, Lokoja.
SP William Ovye-Aya, the Command’s image maker, confirmed the development while speaking with newsmen in Lokoja, adding that several others sustained serious injuries during the attack.

Ovye-Aya said gunmen had invaded a Celestial Church, “Blood of Jesus Parish,” at Felele quarters, around 8.00. p.m. on Sunday, and opened fire on worshippers, killing two persons and injuring many others.

“There was a distress call made to our command over the attack, which left two female worshippers dead, and several others injured.

“On getting the alert, our command quickly deployed a response team to the area with a view to restoring normalcy in the area and arresting the perpetrators.
“Although there is no arrest yet, investigations are on to fish out the perpetrators who would face the full wrath of the law.

“Already, the corpses of the victims of the attack have been deposited at the Morgue of the Federal Medical Centre, Lokoja, where the injured are also being treated,” he said.

Ovye-Aya, however, called on the public to remain calm, and peaceful and go about their normal activities as the Police were on top of the matter.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), reports that the attack was the second in the space of three weeks as another Church was attacked within the same Felele Quarters of Lokoja.
