An eyewitness said that the gunmen invaded the community on Sunday night with sporadic gunshots which last for several hours.

The source said, “It was around 8:30 pm on Sunday that the gunmen who came in motorcycles arrived in the community. Residents who were alerted by their gunshots ran helter skelter but they forced themselves into the official residence of Rev Dong and abducted him. His wife who tried to rescue him was shot in the leg and was later taken to the hospital.”

He noted that, “Almost at the same time, another set of gunmen also invaded the house of a Principal of Government Secondary School Bum in the same Ganawuri community, Mr James Mann. His elder brother is the Chief Justice of Plateau State, Mr Justice David Mann. But he was lucky because some hunters and vigilante members were able to give the gunmen a hot chase and rescued the principal ”
