The Baptist Church, Kakau Daji in Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State, was invaded on Sunday by some gunmen, killing two while scores were said to have been abducted.
The incident was confirmed by the President of the Kaduna Baptist Convention, Rev. Ishaya Jangado, but he noted that the exact number of those abducted had yet to be ascertained as of the time of filing this report.
“The incident occurred this morning but we don’t know the exact number of people that were kidnapped yet,” he said.
Reacting to the incident, Chairman of the state chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria, Rev. Joseph Hayab, 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.
“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,” Hayab added.
