It was gathered that the incident happened on Sunday evening when the gunmen invaded the church premises and started shooting sporadically, forcing worshippers to scamper for safety.

An eyewitness said, “when they entered, they started shooting at every one outside the church. I now went and hid inside a cassava farm. What I saw yesterday was like an action film in a movie. Kogi is no longer safe”

Two persons were reportedly shot dead while several worshippers were injured and taken to the Federal Medical Centre (FMC) in Lokoja for treatment.

Kogi police spokesperson, William Aya, who confirmed the incident on Monday, said the police division in Falele received the report of the shooting around 7 pm.
