A cleric, Rev. Musa Mairimi, at Evangelical Church Winning All, in Kajuru local government area of Kaduna has been reportedly killed by terrorists.
According to The PUNCH, this was disclosed by the Kaduna State Chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria, Rev. Joseph Hayab, on Saturday.
He said the attackers came into town on Thursday, killed the clergy, and kidnapped his wife. They later released more than a hundred other captives from across the state. He said that in the Local Government Areas of Kauru, Jaba, Kachia, Kagarko, and Kajuru alone, over a hundred persons have been kidnapped and have been held in the terrorists’ camp for over six months.
In the days following the presidential election, he said, terrorists kidnapped three clergymen and demanded N50 million in ransom from one of them.
“But the negotiation that started from N50 million has now come down to N5 million. That’s the kind of situation that we have found ourselves in Kaduna State.
“Who will you cry to and who will you run to, after all, since the carnage of kidnapping started in Kaduna, no concrete arrests have been made,” Hayab lamented.
