Catholic Priest Burnt Alive In Niger Buried Amidst Tears (Photos)

The remains of Reverend Father Isaac Achi of St. Peters and Paul Catholic Church in Kafin-Koro, Paikoro Local Government Area of Niger State, who was burnt to death by gunmen, have been buried at the St Michael Catholic Cemetery in Bosso, Local Government Areas of the state.

Over 500 Catholic priests from within and outside Nigeria thronged the St Michael’s Catholic Cathedral Church Minna to bid farewell to the late cleric in overcrowded final funeral rites.

The priest was set ablaze in his residence when the bandits could not gain access to the parish house last Sunday, while his assistant, Fr. Collins was shot while trying to escape.

Reverend Father Achi was the CAN coordinator of Paikoro Local Government Area, and the Dean and Parish Priest of St. Peter and Paul Catholic Church Kaffin-Koro in Minna Diocese.
