Pastor and 16 Other Christians Kidnapped From Church by Islamic Gunmen in Nigeria

Gunmen in Nigeria reportedly kidnapped an evangelical pastor and 16 other Christians this week in an attack that also killed one person.

The incident happened in the Igabi local government area in Kaduna state.

Rev. Zakariah Ido and 16 members of the Evangelical Church Winning All, including the pastor’s daughter, two elders and the son of an Assemblies of God minister, were kidnapped after midnight in the early hours of Sunday.

A witness said the kidnappers were 20 to 30 armed Fulani extremists, a violent, mostly Islamic group that has carried out many attacks on Christians in Nigeria.

A witness said it happened as the church was hosting a combined choir fellowship.
