Two of the sixty-six members of Emmanuel Baptist Church kidnapped on 31 of October, 2021, have been reportedly killed by their abductors.

The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) in Kaduna State, on Sunday, November 7, confirmed the killing saying that three others were seriously injured by the bandits.

The worshippers were taken hostage when the bandits invaded the Emmanuel Baptist Church, Kakau Daji in Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State.

According to CAN chairman, Rev. Joseph Hayab, “Two of the 66 worshipers abducted on Sunday, October 31, 2021, at Emmanuel Baptist Church, Kakau Daji, Chikun LGA of Kaduna State have been killed by their captors.

“The bandits opened fire on five of their victims on Saturday, November 6, 2021, and killed two people while three others were seriously injured and are currently in the hospital.

“The lives of the Kaduna abducted worshipers are in danger and requires an urgent intervention of government and security agencies. The insecurity in Kaduna state has continued to grow beyond our imagination and is threatening the peace of the nation.”

He appealed, to well-meaning individuals, organisations, the federal government and the international community to come to their rescue, adding that the evil being experienced is more than what an ordinary person in Kaduna and Nigeria can handle.
