The Nigerian Senate during its session on Wednesday, January 25, observed a one-minute silence in honor of the slain Niger priest, Isaac Achi, who was burnt to death in the Paikoro LGA in Niger State.
Rev. Fr. Achi, until his untimely death, had been the Kafin Koro Deanery of the Minna Diocese of Niger State and the Reverend Father in charge of St Peter and Paul Catholic Church, Kafin Koro.
The point of order was brought up by the Niger East lawmaker, Senator Sani Musa, who cited Orders 42 and 51 to seek the Senate’s permission to present a motion on the gruesome murder of Rev. Father Isaac Achi.
The Senate had therefore commiserated with the family of the deceased, the Bishop of Minna Diocese, and had then observed a one-minute silence in honor of the deceased.
