Dabak, an assistant editor, and 39-year-old Sunday Gyang Bwede, a reporter, were on their way to interview a local politician in Gado-Bako when they were attacked by youths who stabbed them to death.

Both men were journalists for "The Light Bearer," a newspaper published by the Church of Christ in Nigeria. An unidentified motorcyclist was also killed in the attack. Only weeks ago, a pastor of the same church was murdered along with his wife in Bauchi state (see for more information).

Four other Christians were murdered on the same day in Dutse Uku district following the discovery of the body of a teenage Muslim who had gone missing. The believers, three of whom were stabbed, were killed when hundreds of Muslim youths rampaged throughout the area in protest. (Source: Compass Direct)
