At the Kudendan community in Kaduna State, two people were killed and a Catholic Reverend Father, Joseph Akeke, was seized by terrorists yesterday.
The attackers, who stormed the church in huge numbers about 1 a.m. and remained there until around 2:30 a.m., fired indiscriminately before obtaining inside.
“We couldn’t sleep last night owing to anxiety and gunfire,” a resident told media. Kudenda Catholic Church’s Reverend Father was kidnapped. His bodyguard was slain, as did another guy in the village, and a lady and her two children were kidnapped.”
Mohammed Jalige, the Kaduna Police Public Relations Officer, said he will find out more information.
Security officers with stern expressions were observed in the vicinity, but law-abiding residents went about their business unmolested.
Rev Joseph John Hayab, Chairman of CAN in Kaduna State, verified the occurrence, adding, “Yes, it happened about 1.30 a.m.” Mr. Luka, the security guard for Rev Fr Joseph Akete of St. John’s Catholic Church in Kudenda, was slain. The bandits also killed another individual in the village that night.”
