Southern Kaduna Christian Leaders Condemn Repeated Attacks On Priest

The Southern Kaduna Christian Leaders Association, SKCLA, has
challenged the Federal and Kaduna State Government’s to investigate and put an end to what they termed “the continues persecution of Priests across the Country.

The challenged was contained in a Press Statement issued and signed by the Chairman of the Association, Apostle (Dr) Emmanuel Nuhu Kure, while reacting to the news of the gruesome murder of Rev. Fr. John Mark Chietnum, one of the two kidnapped Catholic Priests in Kafanchan Diocese.

Apostle Kure who lamented on the rising cases of Priests being Kidnapped and in some cases killed by their abductors, even after receiving ransoms, also tasked security operatives to always be proactive in their response to crime and criminalities, instead of reactive.

He described the murdered Priest as one of the active members of the Association who has contributed in no small way in giving direction to the Christian communities in the area.

The SKCLA however, expressed their condolence to the Catholic community, especially the immediate family of the deceased Priest, Bishop and laity of Kafanchan Diocese over the loss of one of their finest Priests and prayed God to expose his killers and rescue all those in the den of kidnappers.
