Again, bandits have reportedly attacked Christian worshippers in a Church in Manini Tasha village, Kuriga Ward in Chukun local government area of Kaduna State.

One person, identified as a Medical Doctor, was allegedly killed while an unspecified number of worshippers were abducted by the attackers during the services at Baptist Church in Manini village, on Sunday.

An eyewitness, who narrowly escaped the scene at Haske Baptist Church in Manini village, Mr Yakubu Bala, said that the heavily armed bandits stormed the church and sorrounded the worshippers at about 9am.

He explained that the bandits came in their numbers, heavily armed and began to shoot sporadically at the worshipers, as they scampered for safety in different directions.

According to him, “Dr. Zakariah Dogo Yaro, a Medical Doctor with the Kaduna State Ministry of Health was shot dead and unspecified number of people kidnapped while so many worshipers sustained varying degrees of injuries.

“As am talking to you now, we have not seen some of our villagers who ran into the bushes while the shootings were going on.

“We don’t know what’s happening that we are facing this kind of scenario in our peaceful communities.

Most villagers are threatening to leave their homes because of the constant attacks on so many villages in Chukun local government,” Yakubu lamented.
Contacted, the police Command spokdman Mohammed Jalige could not respond till the time of filling this reports. End
