Bandits Raid Kaduna Church, Kill 2, Abduct Scores

Two people were killed while many others were said to have been abducted when bandits invaded Baptist Church, Kakau Daji, Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State yesterday.
Sources said, the bandits who were in large number, surrounded the church and started shooting indiscriminately as people were worshiping.
The source said two people were killed on the spot while the bandits abducted many others.
The President of the Kaduna Baptist Convention, Rev. Ishaya Jangado, confirmed the incident, but said the number of people that were abducted was yet to be ascertained.
“The incident occurred this morning but we don’t know the exact number of people that were kidnapped yet”, he said in a telephone chat.
Spokesman of the Kaduna state police command, Mohammad Jalige could not be reached when contacted as his mobile telephone was not connecting.
Chikun LGA is one of the areas where telecom services had been suspended while the use of motorcycles were banned as part of strategies to tackle banditry and kidnappings
Reacting to the incident, the Chairman of the Kaduna state chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Rev. Joseph Hayab, said the latest attack is “another sad story of how deteriorating our insecurity has become.”
Hayab lamented that “citizens are being killed like chickens with only press statements as consolation.”
He said: “These evil people have trouble us for too long . I condole with the families of the Baptist denomination and Kaduna Christians for this loss and urge our security agencies to separate war against enemies of Nigerians from politics. No one knows who will be the next target.
