Pastor & 16 Church Members Kidnapped During Service In Kaduna
A pastor and his church members have been reportedly kidnapped in Kaduna state.
Rev. Zakariah Ido, a senior Pastor of Evangelical Church Winning All, ECWA in Dankade, Igabi LGA of Kaduna state and 16 members of the church were today seized by gunmen suspected to be herdsmen who invaded the church during service.
Here is what Rev Nath Waziri, the Zaria DCC Secretary of ECWA, said about the abduction around 10pm tonight:
“It is sad to inform you that one of our pastors, his daughter and 15 other members of ECWA Church Dankade were kidnapped in the early hours of today.
“The church hosted a combine choir fellowship Saturday night to early hours of today. Then, this morning (Sunday), kidnappers stormed the church, when the gunmen came, they asked everyone in the church to surrender his or her phones and demanded the whereabouts of the pastor.
“After threatening the choristers they became afraid and showed them the pastor home. They took him away and his daughter with 15 others amongst which there is the son of the pastor of Assemblies of God Church.”
Waziri said most of the victims were young ladies.
