Gunmen have reportedly shot dead he minister in charge of Ecwa Church, Rev. Musa Mairimi, in Kajuru Local Government Area of Kaduna State.
Confirming the incident to newsmen on Saturday, Kaduna State Chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria, Rev. Joseph Hayab said the attackers invaded the community on Thursday after killing the clergy and abducting his wife.
Hayab also explained that over 100 people who were abducted in different parts of the state and have been in the gunmen’s camp for over six months were released.
He disclosed that just after the presidential election, three clergies were abducted and the gunmen were demanding the sum of N50 million as ransom from one of the clergies who is still in their custody.
“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.
While commenting on the just concluded governorship and state House of Assembly election in Kaduna State, he said by a mere rumour that a particular party had won, the state went agog in celebration, which shows the people are angry with the present administration.
“Whoever emerges as the new leader in the state understands the mind of the people, their anger and is willing to do something different, it won’t take long before there would be a new sigh of relieve,” Hayab concluded.
