Attack on church in Nigeria: 1 dead, more than 100 Christians kidnapped

[Update: The number of people abducted, initially announced at more than 100, would in fact be 66.]

“When the gunmen arrived, they first went to the children's church, but changed their mind and surrounded the church. "

On Sunday, October 31, in Kaduna State, the Kakau Daji Baptist Church was attacked. The toll is heavy, one dead and more than 100 Christians kidnapped. The president of the Baptist Convention of the State of Kaduna accuses Fulani herders.

John Hayab, president of the Christian Association of Nigeria for Kaduna State, explains that the attackers initially targeted children.

“When the gunmen arrived, they first went to the children's church, but changed their mind and surrounded the church. "

He deplores the problems associated with communication network.

“The truth about shutting down the telecommunications service network is that the people who make policies are not being fair to the citizens. You will agree with me that the government is doing trial and error, and it has not worked to reduce insecurity in the state. Devotees abducted from the Emmanuel Baptist Church reportedly cried out on Sunday for their rescue and for people to know they were in danger, but they could not cry out. So shutting down the telecommunications network even helped the bandits more. "
