Shehu Sani Confirms Attack On Kaduna Church, Reveals Number Killed, Kidnapped

Former Kaduna Central Senator, Shehu Sani has condemned Sunday’s attack on Haske Baptist Church in Chikun local government area of Kaduna State.

It was gathered that the bandits abducted some worshippers, while others sustained injuries.

This is coming after corpses of three students of Greenfield University a private institution in Chukun LGA, were found three days after their abduction.

The former Senator while condemning the attack, revealed in a statement on his Twitter account that two worshippers were killed while six others were abducted by gunmen who stormed the church on Sunday morning.

He added that over seventy people have been kidnapped from the axis in the last one week.

Naija News earlier reported the gunmen attack on worshippers in Chikun LGA of Kaduna State.

Confirming the report, Sani wrote on Twitter:

The attacks and abduction on Haske Baptist Church in Chikun LG, Kaduna State early this morning is tragic and condemnable. I called and confirmed that two were killed and Six were kidnapped. Over 70 people are in the hands of kidnappers within that axis in the last one week.”

The new development comes barely 48 hours after bandits who stormed Greenfield University, a privately-owned tertiary institution in Kaduna State, and kidnapped some students, killed three of the students abducted on Wednesday.

The Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs in Kaduna State, Samuel Aruwan in a statement released on Friday, said the remains of the three students were found at Kwanar Bature village, a location close to the university, on Friday.

Meanwhile, Nobel Laureate, Prof Wole Soyinka has once again called on President Muhammadu Buhari to wake up from his slumber and realize all is not well with Nigeria.

Soyinka in a statement on Saturday titled “The endless Martyrdom of youth,” called on the Buhari-led administration to seek help in curbing the many challenges facing Nigeria as a country.

He noted that the heart of many Nigerians are already broken and the people live in despair, unsure of what lies in stock for them in the future as everything looks bleak.

Soyinka noted that Nigeria is already getting overstretched and desperately in need of solutions as the country with every passing minute tends towards a failing state.

He reiterated the need to stop playing politics with the future of the youths of the country but to sit tight and find solutions to ravaging problems threatening to tear the country apart.

Death of Kaduna varsity students: God will hold men of God who brought Buhari to power accountable – Pastor Giwa

From Bamigbola Gbolagunte, Akure

Senior pastor of Awaiting The Second Coming Of Christ Ministry, Akure, Adewale Giwa has come after some religious leaders who supported President Muhammadu Buhari’s election in 2015 and 2019, saying God will hold them responsible for the current woes of the country.

The cleric who invoked curses upon the enemies of good people of Nigeria while addressing his members on Sunday, noted that some men of God who worked for the emergence of All Progressives Congress (APC) in 2015 have decided to remain silent in the face of injustice.

The fierce cleric said God will hold the men of God who worked for the election and re-election of Buhari accountable if they continue to keep silent, while the wicked continue with their wickedness.

He said, “Samuel pronounced and anointed Saul as the king of Israel. When Saul went astray, it was the same Samuel who confronted and told him that God had rejected him as king. Where are those who brought President Buhari to power? Why would they continue to watch the wicked rejoice over the people?

“What has come over them? Why can’t they speak out against evil, injustice and oppression? haven’t they heard from God?

“May the enemies of Nigeria don’t know peace for the rest of their lives in Jesus name. Woe to the wicked! Disaster is upon them, and they will be paid back for what their hands have done.

“Woe to him who builds a city with bloodshed and finds a town with violence. Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness; who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!

“How can a president who is really proactive be watching while criminals take over his government? Why must you wait for issues to happen before you react? Who does that?

“Can anyone be happy to see or hear that his children have been maimed, displayed and killed by bandits?

“Why are you running away from what can permanently solve the nation’s challenges? He has refused to change that evill 1999 constitution, he abandons 2014 comfab report, no restructuring and he is saying Nigeria should not disintegrate.

“Tell him that people will go by force, by fire. Open your mouth and tell the devil that ‘you can’t hold me down.’

“Whatever holding Nigeria down is hereby broken into pieces in Jesus name. A new name shall be given soon and the devil will be put to shame.

“If president Buhari refuses to divide Nigeria, the country will divide herself. Anybody who loves him should tell the president that he should allow Nigerians to go their different ways,” he added.
