Two persons have been killed and several others kidnapped by gunmen suspected to be bandits at the Baptist Church, Kakau Daji in Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State.
The President of the Kaduna Baptist Convention, Rev. Ishaya Jangado, who confirmed the incident noted that the exact number of those abducted had yet to be ascertained.
“The incident occurred yesterday (Sunday) but we don’t know the exact number of people that were kidnapped yet,” he said.
Chairman of the state chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria, Rev. Joseph Hayab, while reacting to the incident, said the attack was “another sad story of how deteriorating our insecurity has become.”
Hayab added: “Citizens are being killed like chickens 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 war against enemies of Nigerians from politics. No one knows who will be the next target.”
