Armed Gunmen Kill Pastor In Kaduna Community



By Sola Omoniyi, Lagos

As the security in Nigeria deteriorates, it is another heartbreaking event as suspected gunmen killed a pastor of Tawaliu Baptist Church, simply identified as Rev. Jeremiah Mayau, Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna state.

According to the report, the sad incident occurred on Wednesday, August 23, while the clergyman was working on his farm located at Kujama Chikun.

The occurrence was affirmed on Thursday, August 24, by Rev. Joseph Hayab, the state chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria.

“The barbaric incident happened on Wednesday afternoon while the Rev. Jeremiah was in his farm at prison farms Kujama Chicken LGA of Kaduna state,” Rev. Joseph stated.

“Sadly, gunmen moved without challenge in broad daylight to carry out their evil act,” he added

Rev. Joseph lamented that even when living in a civilised society like ours where there’s constituted authority, the criminal elements in the society still operate freely.

He stressed that it’s painful that when an eyebrow was raised, such individuals were seen as a deviant that’s just looking for trouble while those in authority had otherwise failed to protect the citizens.
