Bandits Set Church Ablaze In Kaduna, Kill Father, Son
Bandits have attacked a church and two houses in Kikwari community in the Kajuru Local Government Area of Kaduna State, setting fire to the structures.
SaharaReporters learnt that the bandits also attacked Baka village in the Igabi Local Government Area of Kaduna State, in a fresh onslaught where they murdered a father and his son.
The Kaduna Government identified the church as the Holy Family Catholic Church, saying on receiving the report, Governor Nasir El-Rufai commiserated with the community and condemned the burning of the place of worship.
“He charged worshippers to remain strong in their faith and devotion, and see it as an act perpetrated by enemies of peace, humanity, and diversity who will not succeed but will be defeated by the grace of God,” a statement on Sunday said.
It was learnt that the bandits also abducted nine people in the community which recorded its second attack within eight days.
