Gunmen kill one in Kaduna church attack 

Some gunmen have killed a worshipper during an attack on the Evangelical Church Winning All (ECWA), Gabaciwa, in Kachia LGA of Kaduna state, on Sunday.

Scores of others also sustained injuries in the attack that took place during the church’s regular Sunday worship.

Similarly, gunmen killed one person in Igabi LGA of the state.

Samuel Aruwan, Kaduna commissioner for internal security and home affairs, confirmed both incidents, according to a report by TheCable.

Aruwan conveyed state Governor Nasir El-Rufai’s condolences on the incidents and confirmed the injured were being treated at a hospital.

“Security agencies reported to the government that the attack occurred at ECWA Church, Gabaciwa in Kachia local government area,” he reportedly said.

El-Rufai, according to Aruwan, described the incident “as an evil act targetting innocent citizens exercising their constitutional and universal rights to religious freedom”.

“The governor added that the attack on the worshippers was a divisive intent of the criminals leveraging religious sensitivity,” he said.
