23 clergymen have been killed and over 200 churches sacked by the activities of bandits in Kaduna State alone, in recent times.
The Chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria, (CAN), Kaduna Chapter, Reverend Joseph Hayap, disclosed this during a community engagement, between CAN and the Kaduna State Police Command in Kaduna.
Reverend Hayap appealed to government at all levels, and security operatives, to intensify efforts to curtail the menace.
Kaduna State Commissioner of Police, CP Musa Garba, said the command is working tirelessly with its sister agencies to reduce the activities of bandits in the state.
It would be recalled that in less than a week, a Catholic seminarian, Na’aman Danlami, was killed by suspected bandits at Saint Raphael Catholic Church in Kamantan, Zango Kataf Local Government Area of the state.
