Unknown gunmen on Sunday stormed the Baptist Church, Kakau Daji in Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State, killing two and kidnapping scores in the process.
The incident was confirmed by the President of the Kaduna Baptist Convention, Rev. Ishaya Jangado.
Jangado, however, disclosed that the exact number of those abducted had 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.
PUNCH reported that no official confirmation also came from the state government and the police as the Kaduna State Police Command’s spokesman, ASP Mohammad Jalige, could not be reached as of the time of filing this report.
Reacting to the incident, CAN State Chairman, 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.
