Gunmen kill pastor in Kaduna Community
On Wednesday, Rev. Jeremiah Mayau, a pastor of Tawaliu Baptist Church in Kujama, Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State, was assassinated by suspected gunmen.
Rev. Joseph John Hayab, the state chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), confirmed the death to the Daily Post on Thursday. He said, "The barbaric incident happened on Wednesday afternoon while the Rev. Jeremiah Mayau was in his farm at Prison Farms, Kujama Chikun LGA of Kaduna State.
“It is very painful that gunmen move freely in broad daylight to execute their evil act and get away with it in a civilized society like ours where we have constituted authority that is expected to checkmate these criminal elements in the society. It is also painful that when you raise an eyebrow, you are seen as a deviant that is just looking for trouble while those in authority have otherwise refused to do the right thing to ensure harmonious coexistence among the citizens.”
He called on security personnel to be more vigilant in the discharge of their professional duties and curtail the activities of criminal elements that are disrupting the peaceful movement of citizens to earn their daily bread.
He prayed that the Almighty would comfort the immediate family, the church, and the body of Christ.
