The Nigerian Baptist Convention has decried the killing of its members in Plateau State by gunmen.

It was learnt that nine members of the church were among those killed in the Dares community when gunmen attacked several Plateau communities on Christmas Eve.

A member of the church, Ishaya Moses, who survived the attack, confirmed the killing of the church members when the President, Plateau Baptist Conference, Rev. K.K. Saleh, visited the community on Wednesday

“Nine Baptist church members were killed during the attack on Dares community in Bokkos LGA. The victims worship at Nasara Baptist church here.

“After the killings, the terrorists put on the church generator in the night to celebrate their evil deed,” Ishaya told the Baptist president.

Another Baptist member, Malan Maju, who lost his wife and son said the victims had been given a mass burial.

The President, who expressed shock over the killings and the extent of the destruction, berated the high level of insecurity in the country for the past years without any meaningful solution from the security agencies.
