In Kaduna state, On Friday night some religious fundamentalists but a pulpit belonging to the St. Augustine Catholic Church in Tudun Wada in Kaduna South Local Government Area ablaze.

A source stated that last week Friday’s incident was the eight time a part of the church would be set ablaze.

“St Augustine Catholic parish, Tudun wada Kaduna, opposite Maimuna Gwarzo Girls Secondary School behind Kaduna Polytechnic Main Campus was set on fire yesterday, Friday night, by unknown fundamentalists.

“This is not the first time but the eight time this church has been attacked and some of her properties burnt by people we suspect to be Islamic fundamentalists who do not want to see any church standing in that area.”

The incident was confirmed by the Parish Priest, Rev. Father Joshua Achir.

It has also been gathered that the church has alerted the law enforcement agencies about the incident.

On the other hand, Rev. Joseph Hayab, who is the State Chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria and members condemned the incident.

The Kaduna State chapter of CAN is sad with the recent development which clearly shows that Kaduna State is under siege and our government is not paying serious attention to these evil happenings but instead is busy chasing shadows with a divisive preaching bill,” Hayab stated.
