The Assistant Parish Priest of Queen of Apostles Catholic Church, Shinge, Lafia, Rev. Fr Hosea Jatau Titus, is dead.
The cleric reportedly died in an auto crash along Kwandere – Keffi road, Nasarawa State.
Veloxnews gathered that Titus had few days before his death celebrated one year in the priesthood.
However, reacting to the development, friends, family and colleagues took to their Facebook to mourn the priest.
