Islamist extremists kidnapped students and set a church on fire in Nigeria

On the 24th of August, Islamic extremists invaded a school and kidnapped students in Kaduna State, Nigeria.


According to the Christian Solidarity Worldwide organisation, the Fulani extremists invaded the boarding school and kidnapped a teacher and four students who were preparing for their final exam.

The kidnapped children are Happy Odoji (14), Miracle Danjuma (13), her sister Favor Danjuma (9), and Ezra Bako (15). Sometime after the attack, the kidnappers entered in contact with Danjuma’s parents and informed them that the children were in their possession. The families are concerned about their children and ask the government to take the necessary steps to rescue them.

Earlier this summer, the Fulani destroyed the musical instruments and the sound system in the Aminchi Baptist Church, and then set the building on fire. According to the information of the Southern Kaduna Peoples Union (SOKAPU) organization, this year, 45 communities have been attacked in the region.
