Redeemed church pastor, others killed by suspected Herdsmen

Armed men suspected to be Fulani herdsmen on Sunday night reportedly killed 3 persons, including a Pastor, identified as Luka Ubangari of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Unguwan Anjo, near Godogodo in the Jema’a Local Government area of Kaduna State.

The cleric was said to have been ambushed, shot, killed while on his bike after an evangelical visit to Golkofa, also in the area.

The incident occurred a few days after the state governor, Mallam Nasir el-Rufai, visited Godogodo and Sanga districts, in the Jema’a and Sanga local governments areas, all in the southern part of the state to appraise the attacks of suspected Fulani herdsmen in the area.

El-Rufai in the affected villages of Gada Biyu, Anjo and Godogodo penultimate Tuesday, condemned the killings, describing them as ‘senseless,’ promising to arrest the perpetrators.

  1. This is really sad. And to think that nothing tangible has been done concerning these herdsmen is disheartening.
