On a Daily Basis Our Members Are Either Kidnapped or Killed the Kaduna Baptist Conference President, the person of Rev. Ishaya Jangado speaking to newsmen in Kaduna.
the President, Kaduna Baptist Conference, Rev. Ishaya Jangado further said on daily basis its members were either kidnapped or killed in Buruku, Gadani, Gwagwada, Kasuwan Magani, Kakau, Sabon-Tasha and Udawa.
Not less than 35 persons have been killed while 145 members of the Baptist Church were kidnapped by bandits in Kaduna State within the past four months.
The Kaduna Baptist Conference made this known in Kaduna state, Nigeria.
This was just at the Southern Kaduna Peoples Union condemning the attack on the Haske Baptist Church, Kuriga ward in Chikun Local Government Area of the state.
In that attack, a medical doctor attached to the state Ministry of Health, Dr. Zakariya Dogon Yaro, was also killed by the bandits while her daughter, Rose and three others were kidnapped by the hoodlums.
SOKAPU’s Public Relation Officer, Luka Binniyat in an official statement titled, ‘Coalition of Boko Haram/armed herdsmen inching towards Kaduna town’, said the attack was meant to incite religious riot.
Binniyat proceeded to say, “The brazen impunity with which these outlaws operate is shocking and getting scarier. Though hundreds of churches have been burnt or destroyed and abandoned in these areas, last Sunday’s attack on peaceful, harmless congregation of Haske Baptist Church, Manini, in Kuriga ward is most appalling and condemnable.
“The desecration of the church and the coldblooded murder of a medical doctor, Dr Zakaria Dogon Yaro and the abduction of his daughter, Rose Zakariya, and three others was an attempt to incite and spark a religious riot. But our members would never be driven to do that and SOKAPU hails the law abiding and peaceful nature of the Gbagyi people.”
The SOKAPU’s spokesman also said that over 100 communities of Southern Kaduna have been captured and taken over by Fulani herdsmen.
Lastly the group commended the Niger State Governor, Abubakar Bello for sheltering the Internally Displaced Persons from Chikun Local Government Area of the state.
