The Vice Chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN ) in the North and Abuja, Rev. Joseph John Hayab has said Kaduna people are tired of reporting cases of kidnapping.
He said that a Catholic priest was kidnapped while on the “5th of March 2022, Dutsen Gayan in Kajuru, LGA of Kaduna State was attacked and 11 persons were kidnapped.”
He added that though Rev. Fr Joseph Akete of St.John Catholic Church Kudenda was kidnapped and his security, Mr Luka was killed, people no longer report these crimes because they know nothing will be done about it.
“Another person was killed in the community the same night by the bandits,” he said.
“Our dear state has been on the news for the wrong reasons which include banditry, kidnapping, assaults on communities and killings of innocent citizens. This evil must stop now and those keeping quiet need to speak up forthwith.”
“We can not pass this type of record to the next generation when others are struggling to get out of poverty to become self-reliant,” he said.
