Suspected Fulani bandits have again attacked a community in Southern Kaduna, slaughtering many including a Reverend of the Evangelical Church Winning All (ECWA) in Kaduna state.

The residents of Kajuru on the 23rd of March went to sleep peacefully not knowing that they will soon get into another state of mourning as several people were wounded and killed including, Rev Mairimi whose wife was abducted and taken into the bush by suspected Fulani bandits last Thursday.

Many others were believed to have been abducted equally by the assailants when they left on the wee hours of Friday morning.

But search parties have been organized up to Saturday morning to fish out corpses and re unite missing families who ran into the bush for safety.

Until his death, Rev Mairimi was the Pastor of ECWA church Buda 2 kasua Magani, District Church Council (DCC) in Kajuru council area of Kaduna State.

Attempts to reach the Kaduna state Police Command spokesperson Mohammed Jalige by phone as at the time of writing this report, was futile.

However sources within the Church said that the wife of the slain Reverend Mairimi was equally abducted in the process of the slaughter of her husband which she obviously witnessed.

“They attacked the community where he’s pastoring, killed him and went away with his wife and son.

” We don’t know if they razed down his Church with 200-300 members at Kajuru which is a mini town in Kaduna in Buda, a village under kajuru Local Church Council (LCC).

” Top ECWA management of the church are still in shock as at the time of writing this report but we in Kaduna are praying that the wife is released as soon as possible.” said our source.

The Kaduna state government has also not reacted to the matter as at the time of filing this report.

This lingering brutality by bandits have rendered many villages as ghost communities as much as most of the villagers had to escape for their own lives leaving these rouge bandits who come in as herders during the day and transform into marauders in the night.

Stringent cries by the people of southern Kaduna for help against this lingering genocide has fallen on deaf ears as the bandits have been consistent in their attack, kill and occupy policy.
