The Catholic Church of Annunciation, Kubwa, was upgraded as a Parish by the Archdiocese of Abuja and less than 3 months after the upgrade, suspected armed robbers stormed it and carted away valuable equipment and a Toyota Camry. The robbers forced their way into compounds and carted away whatever they could lay their hands on.
According to the Parish Priest, Rev. Fr. Matthew Kwaggas, the robbers stormed the parish after Sunday’s service and stole everything they received for thanksgiving, including bags of rice, money and drinks.
He also told the congregation during Mass that about two weeks after the first raid of the church, the robbers again broke in through one of the windows and removed all the public address system, a vehicle-Toyota Camry and musical instruments.
