Barely hours after kidnap of a Monarch in Ondo state, unknown gunmen were also said to have kidnapped a senior pastor with Evangelical Church Winning All (ECWA), Rev. Yusuf Magaga of Kabene-surubu village in Kauru local government area of Kaduna State.
The Nation gathered that the abductors have demanded N2 million ransom for their victim’s family.
A source and resident of the Kabene-surubu village, Mr. Jacob Wakili who told our Correspondent that the sad event took place at about 2:00am Wednesday, also said the gunmen destroyed part of the church and left some persons injured.
Wakili said the intervention of the local vigilantes saved the situation if not it would have been worst.
According to him: “My village was attacked by fulani herdsmen, but thank God the people were able to mobilise for defence, but the criminals still destroyed part of ECWA church, took away the Pastor of the church and left few injured.”
He further stated that the kidnappers are demanding for the sum of two million Naira as ransom to release the clergy.
Effort to reach the Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Aliyu Usman to confirm the incidence proved abortive as calls made to his mobile phone were not going through.
