Innocent blood have continue to flow in Nigeria’s North Western State of Kaduna as two people have been reported killed, a Church, Pastorium and 17 other Houses burnt during an attack by terrorists.
People no longer sleep with their eyes closed in Nigeria’s Kaduna. Despite that, terrorists move from house to house, community to community, killing, raping and kidnapping for ransom with authorities unable to stem the situation.
In the same Kaduna, parents of kidnapped school children sold their land, houses while others took bank loan to raise ransom for terrorists who now pride themselves as untouchable, writing threat letters to communities and executing their vows without hindrance.
In the latest incident, the terrorists attacked another Kaduna community killing two persons and injuring many.
A church, a Pastorium and over 17 other houses were burnt, residents say.
The incident took place at Kutura station of Tantatu ward in Kajuru Local Government Area of Kaduna State.
Some residents of the area said an Evangelical Church Winning All (ECWA) was burnt by the terrorists.
One of the residents also named those killed as Dogo Sandra and Markus.
The terrorists, few days ago attacked part of the Kaduna Airport, Abuja – Kaduna rail line and kidnapped alot of people on the highway.
The terrorists were said to have entered Kutura Station in large numbers.
“They attacked the village today’s (Friday) afternoon around 12:47pm with sophisticated weapons and petrol with which they set the Church, Pastorium and Houses ablazed,” a resident said.
He said the people of the area were lucky this time to have escape kidnapping, a trick by the Terrorists to raise more money.
“We were lucky that there was no kidnaping except for some persons who sustained varying degrees of injuries, “he added.
He said people who sustained injuries have been taken to a medical facility and are receiving treatment.
“This bandits (Terrorists) have been attacking our communities since Tuesday, burning houses but only succeeded in killing two people today,” another resident says.
Within few days, terrorists in their large numbers invaded Angwan Damisa, Ungwan Adai, Ungwan Sarki, Ungwan Jaba, Kampany and Kauyen Tasha all in the same Tantatu ward of Kajuru local government and angrily burnt down houses and carted away three motorcycles, an action the terrorists claim was as a result of their inability to meet with the locals when they came for the operation. .
The Kaduna State Police Spokesman, ASP Muhammed Jalige could not be reach. He did not also pick his calls to confirm the incidence as at the time of filing the report.
