CAN probes masqueraders' invasion of Plateau Church

A pastor and his congregation were flooged by some yet-to-be-identified individuals who invaded a church in Shikal village of Langtang South Local Government Area of Plateau State.

According to Daily Trust, the men, costumed as masquerades, stormed the church on Sunday during service.

The masquerades also said to have destroyed the Church’s musical equipment.

A witness said the church members were awe-stricken over the action of the masquerades, adding that members did not do take any counter-offensive action, but gathered to salvage what was left of their properties.

Elders of the village are said to be making efforts to get to the root of the matter in order to restore normalcy.
