Victims of the St. Ignatius Catholic Church, will be laid to rest at the holy pilgrimage centre in Ayati, Benue state.

The church is calling for the security of lives and properties in Nigeria, especially with the criminal killing of two priests and 17 parishioners by suspected herdsmen on Tuesday at Mbalom village in Benue state.

The Chancellor of Makurdi Diocese, Reverend Father Jude Ortese, made the call in Makurdi, the Benue state capital while conveying the pain of the Church to the Federal government, describing the killing of Priests during mass as an act of abomination.
