The fire, according to knowledgeable sources took place on Thursday night.
One of the seminarians of the three that were in the parish when bandits struck a few minutes before 8.00 p.m. revealed that the third, Naman, was nowhere to be found. He was later confirmed to be Late Stephen Naman.
Southern Kaduna has been under the onslaught of bandits for years, just like the northern part, where bandits and terrorists hold sway in the forests there.
