Vitrus Borogo, chaplain of the Catholic community of the Kaduna State Polytechnic, has been killed by suspected bandits who attacked him on a farm along Kaduna-Kachia road.
The attack on the 50-year-old cleric happened on Saturday.
Borogo’s death was confirmed by Christian Emmanuel, chancellor of the Catholic Archdiocese of Kaduna, via a statement on Sunday.
“Father Borogo was aged 50 and was the chaplain of the Catholic community of the Kaduna State Polytechnic and Chairman of the Nigerian Catholic Diocesan Priests Association (NCDPA), Kaduna chapter,” Emmanuel said.
“Most Rev. Matthew Man-Oso Ndagoso, the Catholic Archbishop of Kaduna, condoles with the immediate family, the NFCS Family of Kaduna Polytechnic, and indeed the entire Kaduna Polytechnic community and assures them of his fraternal closeness and prayers.”
He said details of his funeral arrangement would be announced soon.
FIJ made calls to Mohammed Jalige, spokesman of the Kaduna police, but as of press time, he had not responded. A text message sent to him was also not responded to.
