Here’s a photo of the hunter who was killed by kidnappers while attempting to rescue Edo Catholic priest.
One Latifah Kadiri took to social media to mourn the hunter, Yusuf Nurudeen, who she described as her uncle.
Yusuf had attempted to rescue late parish priest of St. Michael Catholic Church, lkhabigbo, Edo State, Rev. Fr. Christopher Odia when he was killed in the process.
The priest was abducted from his rectory in the early hours of Sunday, June 25, while he was on his way to conduct a mass for worshippers at the parish.
The Edo State Police Command had deployed a team from Jattu Divisional Police headquarters to the scene.
The security operatives, in collaboration with a team of local vigilante officials, went into the forest with a view to rescuing the catholic priest.
The abductors later killed the clergyman in frustration while Nurudeen was also shot dead during the gun duel.
The hunter has been laid to rest.
