Just In : Gunmen kill popular Cleric, abduct Wife, release over 100 people in captivity
The Minister in charge of ECWA Church, Buda two, Kasuwa Magani in Kajuru Local Government Area of Kaduna State, Reverend Musa Mairimi, has been murdered by suspected terrorists in the State.
The armed men invaded the Cleric’s residence on Thursday and shot him dead, before whisking away his Wife.
The gunmen also freed over 100 people who were abducted from different parts of the state.
The state Chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Rev. Joseph Hayab, who disclosed this on Saturday, said the 100 people were abducted and have been in the terrorists’ camp for over six months, especially in Local Government Areas of Kauru, Jaba, Kachia, Kagarko and Kajuru.
He said just after the presidential election, three clergies were abducted and the terrorists 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.
