He said the bandits opened fire on five of their victims on Saturday, killing two while three others were seriously injured. 

They are currently in the hospital, SaharaReporters learnt. 

He told journalists, “The lives of Kaduna abducted worshippers are in danger and require the urgent intervention of government and security agencies.

“The insecurity in Kaduna state has continued to grow beyond our imagination and is threatening the peace of the nation.

“CAN Kaduna State is appealing to well-meaning individuals, organisations, those in authority, especially the federal government and the international community to come to our rescue.

“The evil we are experiencing is more than what an ordinary person in Kaduna and Nigeria can handle.

“CAN is appealing to all Christians and people of our state to be united in fighting this evil and be watchful."
