Eight members of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) have reportedly been kidnapped by bandits in Kaduna State.
They were reportedly abducted on Friday evening, March 26 while on transit along Kachia Road in the southern part of the state.
Leader of the men’s fellowship of the church in the province, Elder Adaji told Channels Television that the abducted persons were on their way to Kachia for an evangelical outreach programme before their bus was ambushed by the bandits.
It was gathered that the victims were transferred to another vehicle by the bandits who zoomed off to an unknown location, leaving behind the church bus.
Former senator representing Kaduna Central, Shehu Sani who confirmed the incident tweeted;
The report of the Kidnapping of RCCG members along Kachia road in Kaduna is yet another tragedy.Bandits have turned our state into their hub;B4 one kidnap is resolved,another one is unfolding.Humans have become preys.On entry you meet their snare,on exit you meet their ambush.
To the Imams in our own part of the country who wants to move to the villages to preach during Ramadan;To the Pastors who wants to move to the rural areas to minister during Easter,suspend action;Bandits are Godless.
