Two killed, scores kidnapped as gunmen attack Church

Two persons were killed and several others abducted when unknown gunmen attacked a Baptist Church on Sunday.

The incident was said to have happened at the Baptist Church in Kakau Daji in Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State.

Confirming the attack, the President of the Kaduna Baptist Convention, Rev. Ishaya Jangado, said that they are yet to ascertain the exact number of people abducted.

“The incident occurred this morning but we don’t know the exact number of people that were kidnapped yet,” he said.

The state government is however silent on the matter as no official statement or confirmation came from either the government or the police.

The Kaduna State Police Command’s spokesman, ASP Mohammad Jalige, could not be reached when contacted by newsmen as his mobile telephone was not connecting.

However, the Christian Association of Nigeria, Kaduna chapter, Chairman, Rev. Joseph Hayab, who reacted to the incident, said the attack was “another sad story of how deteriorating our insecurity has become.”

“Citizens are being killed like chickens with only press statements as consolation. These evil people have troubled us for too long,” he said.

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