Gunman have attacked the Nasara Baptist Church Guguwa, near Rigasa in Igabi local government area. They gunmen killed the pastor, Reverend Hosea Akuchi and kidnapped the wife. The abductors have placed a N5 million ransom on her head.
The attackers are sai to have invaded the church at about 1:00AM on Monday. Forcing their way into the apartment of the clergyman, shot him and took his wife, Mrs. Talatu Hosea Akuchi, away.
According to a source, “The abductors said we need to pay them N5 million before they can release her to us.”
“How can this injustice continue in a country like Nigeria without any serious measures in place to check the activities of these people.
You can imagine that they now have the gut to walk into people’s home, kill and abduct and also have an effrontery to demand for ransom. Where and how can we get that money?
How can we become prisoners in our own country as law abiding citizens?”
The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Kaduna Police Command, DSP Yakubu Sabo had earlier confirmed that the clergyman was shot while struggling with attackers whose intention may be to abduct him.
