Fr. Tyolaha had earlier been displaced by herdsmen in his own parish and he went to take refuge in Fr. Gor’s parish. However, their unrelenting attackers still sought him out in his place of refuge and murdered both priests.fr-gor-696x696Fr. Joseph Gor

Earlier in the year, precisely on January 3rd, Fr. Gor had raised an alarm on his Facebook page that he was living in fear. Gor wrote:

“Living in fear. The Fulanis are still around us here in mbalom. They refuse to go. They still go grazing around. No weapons to defend ourselves.”fr gor-3
