At least eight worshipers were killed on Wednesday when jihadists attacked and razed a building of the Assemblies of God church in the community of Ungwan Gaida, near Kurmin Kaso, in the local government area of Chikun, in Kaduna State, in northern Nigeria.
The attack came barely a week after a series of attacks on churches by jihadists who also kidnapped dozens of Christians in the country.
Kaduna State Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan identified those killed in the latest attack as Samaila Gajere, Bawa Gajere, Bitrus Baba,Umaru Baba, Solomon Samaila, Sambo Kasuwa, Samuila Kasuwa, and Gideon Bitrus.
Residents confirmed to Gazette Africa that the attackers are jihadists of the country’s Fulani ethnic group.
“There were many of them, they attacked the church, massacre the faithfuls and set the church on fire,” an eyewitness said.
Meanwhile, the federal government led by Muhammadu Buhari, a Fulani Muslim, made no immediate official statement condemning the attack.
