A statement by Most Reverend Musa Filibus on behalf of the church said it condemns in the strongest term the killing of the man of God, who has been in the vineyard of service to God.

The church, the statement added, is calling on government and security agents to ensure that the perpetrators of the dastardly act are brought to book in no distance time.

Most Reverend Musa Filibus, however, called on the entire Christians to be prayerful for the security agents to fish out the killers.

Meanwhile, Adamawa State Governor, Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri, has called on security operatives in the state to redouble their efforts in addressing the emerging security threat of systematic killings in the state.
