Two Catholic priests were beaten, one shot in the leg when gunmen suspected to be Fulani herdsmen attacked a minor seminary in Jalingo, Taraba State capital.
During the attack which was said to have taken place on Monday morning, some students were injured and many cars destroyed.
While the persons injured were said to be receiving treatment at the Federal Medical Centre, it was not yet clear if people were killed.

He said, “Please Frs, pray for us. Our minor seminary in Jalingo has just been attacked by the Fulani, some students are injured, some cars destroyed, two priests beaten and one shot on the leg. They are currently receiving treatment at FMC.”
