Worshippers abducted, two killed as bandits attack Kaduna Baptist church
Two worshippers of the Baptist Church in Kakau Daji, Chikun LGA, Kaduna state, were killed on October 31 when bandits attacked the church during a Sunday service.
Before they began firing intermittently, the bandits surrounded the chapel.
According to Ishaya Jangado, president of the Kaduna Baptist Convention, who verified the incident to TheCable, an unidentified number of the convention’s congregants were taken during the raid.
“The incident occurred this morning but we don’t know the exact number of people that were kidnapped yet,” he said
Reacting, Joseph Hayab, chairman of the Kaduna state chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), described the attack as “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.
I condole 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.” he said.
