Mr. Joseph Bako, a Kaduna State Priest has died in terrorists hands.

TVC News Nigeria gives us a report on a Parish Priest that was killed by terrorists.

The Parish Priest of a Catholic Church in Kaduna State, who was abducted by terrorists two months ago at his residence in Chikun Local council, has reportedly died in captivity. Mr. Joseph Bako was the reverend father of Saint John’s Catholic Church in Kaduna. He was kidnapped on the eighth of March this year. Although the police authorities are yet to confirm the incident, the Chancellor of the Catholic Archdiocese of Kaduna, Reverend Father Christian Okewu, disclosed this to newsmen Wednesday night. This is a tragic incident, and our thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of Father Bako. We hope that the perpetrators of this heinous crime will be brought to justice.
