About 200 Muslim youths yesterday attacked St. Philip’s Catholic Parish, Baki Iku, which is very close to Zuma Rock in Niger State, for worshiping on Friday. This is happening few days after a female pastor in the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Mrs. Eunice Olawale, was brutally killed by suspected Muslim extremists.
Photos from the attacked church have now emerged.
According to eyewitnesses, some Catholics had gone to the church to pray and were attacked by the Muslims who claimed that Friday is their day of prayer and that the Church only has right to worship on Sundays. More photos below.
