The Kaduna chapter of the Evangelical Church Winning All (ECWA) has confirmed the murder of Rev. Silas Yakubu Ali.
This was contained in a message sent to all branches Sunday by the ECWA Zonon District Church Council (DCC).
The deceased was the Senior Pastor of ECWA in Kibori and formerly DCC Assistant Secretary.
Ali was gruesomely killed on Saturday in Zango within the Zangon Kataf Local Government Area.
The cleric had left for Kafanchan and was incommunicado shortly after.
A group of worshippers and villagers set out to look for him and found the body early Sunday morning in Kibori near Asha-Awuce.
The Kaduna State government has condoled with the church and his family, while informing the public that an investigation was ongoing.
