Bandits Invade Church in Kaduna, Kill Doctor, Abduct Several Worshippers

by Achadu Gabriel, Kaduna 

Again, bandits have reportedly attacked Christian worshippers in a church in Manini Tasha Village, Kuriga Ward, in Chukun local government area of Kaduna State.

One person, identified as a Medical Doctor, was allegedly killed, while an unspecified number of worshippers were abducted by the attackers during the church service at Baptist Church in Manini Village, on Sunday.

An eyewitness, who narrowly escaped the scene at Haske Baptist Church in Manini Village, Mr Yakubu Bala, said that the heavily-armed bandits stormed the church and surrounded the worshippers at about 9am.

He explained that the bandits came in their numbers, heavily armed, and began to shoot sporadically at the worshipers, who scampered for safety, in different directions.

According to him, “Dr. Zakariah Dogo Yaro, a Medical Doctor with the Kaduna State Ministry of Health, was shot dead and unspecified numbers of people kidnapped, while so many worshipers sustained varying degrees of injuries.

“As am talking to you now, we have not seen some of our villagers, who ran into the bushes, while the shootings were going on.

“We don’t know what’s happening that we are facing this kind of scenario in our peaceful communities.

“Most villagers are threatening to leave their homes because of the constant attacks on so many villages in Chukun local government,” Yakubu lamented.

Contacted, the Police Command spokesman, Mohammed Jalige, could not respond till the time of filling this report.
