A cleric with the ECWA church, Zaria District Church Council and his daughter were abducted by unknown gunmen on Sunday.

Fifteen other members of the church were also kidnapped.

The Chairman of ECWA Zaria District Church Council, Reverend Nathaniel Waziri disclosed this in a press statement made available to newsmen in Kaduna.

The incident according to him happened while the church was hosting a combined choir fellowship which lasted Saturday night to the early hours of Sunday.

The statement reads in part “The gun men came and asked everyone in the church to surrender phones and thereafter demanded the whereabouts of the pastor”

“After threatening the choristers, they became afraid and showed them the pastor’s house ”

“They took him away and his daughter with 15 others amongst which is the son of the pastor of Assemblies of God Church”.
