Nigerian Christians have been told to arm themselves in Southern Kaduna.
A former presidential aide, Reno Omokri, made the call on Sunday after some churches were attacked by terrorists leaving worshippers dead in Southern Kaduna.
Kaduna State Commissioner, Ministry of Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, on Sunday confirmed an attack on two churches in Rubu village under Kajuru local government area.
He confirmed that three worshippers were killed and several locals were also kidnapped by bandits during the attack.
Aside the churches, the assailants also attacked locals at Ungwan Turawa and Ungwan Makama within the same area, the commissioner noted.
This is happening barely 48 hours after victims of St. Francis Catholic Church in Owo, Ondo State, who were massacred by terrorists, were given a mass funeral.
Among those killed in the Kaduna attack on Sunday are the ward head of Ungwan Fada, Peter Madaki, a resident identified as Elisha Ezekiel and Ali Zamani the Youth leader of Rubu village.
In reaction to the concurrent attacks on Christian worshippers, Omokri tweeted, “I strongly condemn the killing of worshippers at the St Moses Catholic Church, Robuh, Kaduna.
“This renewed assault on Christians, and especially the Catholic Church must not stand. Churches must arm themselves in self defence, because the FG either will not or cannot defend them.”
