Moses Iorapuu and made available to newsmen read in part, "Reverend Fathers Joseph Gor and Felix Tyolaha have been confirmed dead in the deadly attack by herdsmen/Jihadists early today (Tuesday) on Mbalom village and St. Ignatius Quasi Parish Ukpor-Mbalom".

We also taught them how we want them to behave because they are at the receiving end when trouble starts, because they move with all they have in this whole world, which are the cows, children and their families... "This is just the beginning and we are going to sustain it", he said.
