The Nigerian Senate on Wednesday observed a one-minute silence in honour of Fr. Isaac Achi, the slain Niger priest who was burnt to death in the Paikoro Local Government area in Niger State.
Achi, until his untimely death, was 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 raised by the Niger-East lawmaker, Senator Sani Musa, who cited Orders 42 and 51 to seek the leave of the Senate to present a motion on the gruesome murder of Rev. Father Isaac Achi.
The Senate, thereafter, condoled with the family of the deceased, the Bishop of Minna Diocese and observed a one-minute silence in honour of the deceased.
