During the attack, his assailants also set fire to his home, the church, and the school, among other things.

The Hausa Christians Foundation described the incident in the following manner in a Facebook post on Saturday:

“Rev. Shuaibu has served as the Northeastern Evangelist of New Life Church and the Chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) in the Sumaila Local Area of Kano State. He was a resident of a village known as Massu.

“Recently, the Moslems have expressed envy for the expansion of the Missionary base in Massu, as well as a desire to see it removed from its natural environment for no legitimate reason.

The following day, a young man who had converted from Islam but had not been attending church or mosque had a fight with his brother’s wife. The young man surrendered himself to the MOPOL officers stationed in the area and was taken to the station for further prosecution as a result of the fight, in which he hit her with a Piston and she died.

It became extremely tense as people who were aware of the Moslems’ position in the area advised the Reverend to leave the area for a more secure location because the Moslems believed the young man who killed a woman in a fight is a Christian, sensing that they may attack as they have in the past, with the Reverend being the primary target because of his obvious exploits.

“He left for one of the neighbouring villages called Biri, where he stayed for a night, and the next day he returned to evacuate the schoolchildren in order to avoid any eventualities, knowing that if the school activities continued, the children would be easily targeted and murdered.”

After noticing that the tension had been dowsed, late Reverend Shuaibu believed that he could remain with his family and people, but the Moslems gathered their mob and descended on him, macheted him severely, and then set fire to his house, the church, and the school in the middle of the night.

His wife was able to sneak out with the Children despite the mob’s attention because it had already gotten dark outside.

It was reported to other villages, and the vice CAN chairman immediately called for assistance from law enforcement. “Before they arrived, the damage had already been done; they rushed him to the hospital, where they attempted to resuscitate him, but he was unable to survive,” the statement said in part.

A statement from the Kano State Police Command, as well as from the Christian Association of Nigeria, was not immediately available.

  1. The government had condoned that in the past thus the perpetrators are left off hook.If government had in the past hold people accountable for their heinous crime that would have serve as a detterent to others.It will get to stage where all Nigeria will take laws into their hand since some tribe and religion faith are treated like sacred goat.

  2. For how long will Christians continue to be endangered species for no just cause. Think of it, if reprisal attack is launched against Muslims all over the place, l Wonder what will be their Fate. Moreover, no one has the Monopoly of violence.

  3. Our report of the situation differs from ur write up which is wiping up sentiments as law enforcement agents our duty is protection of human life’s it was gathered that the son of the late pastor accidentally killed someone of which the matter ought to have been reported to the police rather the Muslim youths mobilized for reprisal attack but the later pastor obstructed them by denying them access to his son in the ensuing fracas he was dragged and matched severally till he lost his life

  4. I still don’t understand why northern muslims hate their fellow northern christians with a passion. Places like Kano, Kaduna and Bauchi are where Muslims kill Christians like fowls within the twinkle of an eye.😢
