Two persons have been killed and many worshippers abducted during an attack by bandits on a Baptist Church in Kakau Daji, Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State.
Confirming the sad incident, the President of the Kaduna Baptist Convention, Ishaya Jangado, said the attack happened during Sunday service.
Jangado stated that the bandits surrounded the church and ensured that all the exits were covered before they launched an attack on the church.
He disclosed that two worshippers were killed by the criminals who started shooting sporadically, while a yet to be ascertained number of church members were also kidnapped.
Also speaking, the Chairman of the Kaduna state chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Joseph Hayab, condemned that attack on the church.
The CAN official stated that the attack shows another sad story of how deteriorating insecurity in Nigeria has become.
He said: “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.”
