Bandits kill APC youth leader, pastor, three others and abduct 20 in Kaduna
In raids on the communities of Tundun Ibru, Doka, Chibiya, and Ungwan Madaki in Kajuru Local Government Area of Kaduna state, terrorists have killed five people, among them a pastor and a youth leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), and kidnapped no less than twenty others.
On Tuesday, July 5, bandits invaded the Chibiya village in Maro Ward, killing Obadiah Maro, an APC youth leader.
On Wednesday, July 6, Facebook user Nathan Dikko Aliyu posted images from the funeral and said that the bandits also kidnapped an undetermined number of people in Chibiya.
He stated in his writing, “The defecating silence of the democratically elected: our territories have become theatres of bloodshed.”
“It is alarming, regrettable, and categorically unacceptable that there has been a constant wave of kidnappings, killings, and property damage throughout the Chikun and Kajuru LGAs while our leaders have remained completely silent.
“Mr. Obadiah, one of our brothers, was once more killed by those uncircumcised terrorists’ gunshots today, and other brothers were taken hostage.
“He served as the APC Youth Leader for Maro Ward in Kajuru LGA, Kaduna State, till his death. I pray that the God of vengeance would exact justice for both the victims of these gunmen and his own deceased. Amen. May his soul rest in peace.”
In a separate incident, bandits abducted Rev. Adamu Buba, the pastor of the ECWA Church, on Monday in Tudun Ibru. It was discovered on Tuesday morning.
Ejes Gist Newspaper gathered that roughly 13 people were taken during the incident in Doka.
Rev. John Joseph Hayab of the Kaduna State Christian Associated of Nigeria (CAN), who confirmed the attack, said the ongoing attacks on churches are concerning since the assailants do not even want the dead to be buried.
“You are no longer secure in work, school, church, or even at home. How long will there be more murders? The situation is worrying.” said he.
