Pastor killed, wife kidnapped in Kaduna

A pastor in charge of the second Evangelical Church Winning All (ECWA), Damakasuwa in the Kauru Local Government Area of Kaduna State, has been murdered by some unknown gunmen. The wife of the pastor was also kidnapped by the gunmen.

The sad incident was confirmed to PUNCH on Saturday by a resident, Ishaku Chinge, who is also an elder in the church.

He said the gunmen stormed the community at about 11pm on Friday. Recalling a related sad incident that occurred three months earlier, Chinge said that the gunmen had tried to abduct the son of the cleric. However, their plans were neutralized with the assistance of the community, though the cleric’s son sustained some injuries in the process.

Chinge said, "Yesterday again, they stormed his house, gunned him down and kidnapped his wife. The gunmen had earlier called in the morning, demanding N3million ransom from the family. They have not called again"

Since that occurrence, he said there has been anxiety in the community. Therefore, he appealed to the government and security agencies to help the murdered pastor’s wife with regaining her freedom.

He said, "We are calling on security agencies and the government to help rescue the widow who is traumatised at the moment."
