Some gunmen on Thursday abducted Rev. Yusuf Magaga, a senior pastor with the Evangelical Church Winning All, located in Kabene-Surubu village of the Kauru Local Government Council, Kaduna State.
It was gathered that the kidnappers, who had established contact with the family, demanded N2m ransom for his release.
A resident of Kabene-Surubu village, Mr. Jacob Wakili, told our correspondent that the cleric was kidnapped around 2am on Wednesday.
He said, “The village was attacked by suspected Fulani herdsmen. The people were able to mobilise for defence, but they destroyed part of the ECWA church before taking away the pastor of the church. They injured many others. “
The Police Public Relations Officer, Kaduna State Command, ASP Aliyu Usman, could not be reached on his phone for comment as his line was switched off.
