The Catholic Diocese of Jalingo has unveiled and dedicated a pilgrimage centre in memory of late Fr. David Tanko who was brutally murdered in the wake of the violence and crime that bedeviled Southern Taraba.
In his homily, the Bishop, Most Rev. Charles M. Hammawa Catholic Diocese of Jalingo, made it clear that the dedicated ground would become a site of prayer through the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary. The dedicated pilgrimage centre is located at St. Peter’s Parish Amadu.
Through the prayers offered at the ground, we pray that the Lord would redeem Taraba State for every violence’ the bishop added.
He called on the killers of Fr. Tanko to receive the mercy of God and the church even as they repent from such evil ways.
It would be recalled that Fr Tanko was burnt and killed last year inside his car on his way for a peaceful resolution along Takum road in Taraba State.
