A 39-year-old missionary and evangelist, Pastor Leviticus Makpa Markus and his 2-year-old son, Godsend Makpa, have been brutally murdered by armed bandits in Niger State.

Details of the incident are still sketchy at the time of this report, however, it was gathered that bandits few days ago, attacked Kamberi village where the University of Jos graduate was serving as a missionary and slaughered him and his son while his wife managed to escape with their daughter. 

Father and son were laid to rest after a service of songs at the family house in Suleja, Niger State on Sunday evening, May 23.

Meanwhile, condolence messages and tributes have continued to pour in from friends, former classmates and colleagues.

One Samuel Solomon described the late missionary as a “rugged foot soldier of Christ”

“My heart is heavy. Bandits killed a rugged foot soldier of Christ. They shot him and his son….both died. The wife and daughter escaped. This is just an attempt to wipe out Christianity in the region….he has no money, in fact the community he is serving has no government presence so what were the gun men looking for? Definitely it couldn’t have been money….their mission was to wipe the Church,” he wrote.
