pastor’s son

Suspected terrorists on Friday attacked Karimbu-Kahugu community in the Lere Local Government Area of Kaduna State, killing the Baptist Church pastor’s son.

The wife of the pastor and three others were also reportedly kidnapped.

The Vice Chairman, Kahugu National Development Associations, Mr Peter Mukaddas, confirmed the incident to City Round.

He disclosed that the assailants invaded the village and went straight to the cleric’s residence.

It was gathered that the terrorists operated for over one hour unchallenged and in the process, shot sporadically at the ceiling, where the pastor’s son was hiding.

Mukaddas said the incident had been reported to the police.

“We are appealing to the government and security agencies to swing into action and ensure our loves ones are rescued,” he said.

The spokesman for the Kaduna State Police Command, SP Mohammed Jalige, could not be reached as of the time of filing this report.
