The leadership tussle rocking the Assemblies of God Church in Saminaka, Lere Local Government Area of Kaduna State assumed a new height Sunday as it turned bloody.
It would be recalled that Governor Nasir El-Rufai had in September 2015 ordered the closure of the church, including “Theological Seminary of Northern Nigeria, (TSNN) Saminaka, Shalom Comprehensive College, AGC Evangelist Hospital, Saminaka, saying it was to avoid a possible breakdown of law and order from the church, as the two factions squabbled.

A source from the church told our Correspondent that a faction sneaked into the premises of the church to conduct Sunday church services and another faction armed itself and invaded the church injuring about 20 persons and two houses of the Resident Pastors were razed.
