Several Christians kidnapped in Nigeria
Last Saturday, groups of terrorists killed one Christian and abducted 19 others in northern Nigeria, a day after gunmen in the country’s southwest intercepted a church bus and kidnapped 25 members.
The assailants on Saturday invaded Kaduna State’s predominantly Christian Angwan Waku village in the Kufana area of Kajuru County at midnight, an area resident said.
In southwest Nigeria’s Ondo state, 17 of 25 church members kidnapped on Friday remain in captivity after eight escaped their captors, police said.
The members of a Pentecostal church in the Oke Igan area of the city of Akure, Christ Apostolic Church (CAC), were on their way to Ifon, Ose County, for a funeral when the terrorists intercepted their bus, said church member Sunday Emmanuel.
