Gunmen Gunmen

Unknown gunmen invaded the Baptist Church, Kakau Daji, in the Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna state on Sunday, October 31, and killed two persons, while scores were said to have been abducted.

President of the Kaduna Baptist Convention, Rev Ishaya Jangado, confirmed the incident.

“The incident occurred this morning (Sunday), but we don’t know the exact number of people who were kidnapped yet,” he stated.

Chairman of the state chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria, Rev Joseph Hayab, reacting to the incident, said the attack was “another sad story of how deteriorating our security has become.”

“Citizens are being killed like chicken with only press statements as consolation. These evil people have troubled us for too long.

“I condole with the families of the Baptist denomination and Kaduna Christians for these losses and urge our security agencies to separate the war against enemies of Nigerians from politics. No one knows who will be the next target,” he added. 

At the time of filing this report, there has been no official confirmation from the police and the state government.
