Unknown gunmen killed two people and injured three others during an attack in a Celestial Church located in Felele, Lokoja, Kogi State.

The incident happened late Sunday evening, October 16, behind NNPC Mega station in Felele.


Chaos descended on the church as gunmen barged in and opened fire.

An eyewitness said, “When they entered, they started shooting at everyone 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.”

The bodies of the dead have been deposited in the morgue and the injured victims are currently receiving treatment at the Federal Medical Center (FMC), Lokoja.
