Terrorists strikes again St Moses Catholic Church Kaduna

 

Terrorists on Sunday attacked worshippers at St Moses Catholic Church in Robuh, Ungwan Aku, Kajuru Local Government Area of Kaduna State, leaving three worshippers feared killed.

A former Special Adviser on Media to the Governor of Kaduna State, Mr. Reuben Buhari said the attack on Roboh village, Kajuru LGA where 36 people were kidnapped and 3 killed wasn’t the first attack.

 

 

 

 

“The attack on Roboh village, Kajuru LGA today where 36 people were kidnapped and 3 killed wasn’t the first attack. On 5th January 2022, it was attacked and some kidnapped. On 27 April, 2020, the community was attacked again and this time some houses were burnt. Then the attack of today, 19 June, 2022.”

He said because of the constant attacks on the community and surrounding ones, “the people in the village decided to start holding church services early by 7am so that people can hurriedly go back to their homes. It was some few minutes after 7am today, while both the Catholic and Baptist churches were holding their services when the kidnappers attacked.”

 

 

 

 

 

“I spoke to a man whose wife, mother and daughter were taken from the Baptist church today. The anguish in his voice is something none of us should experience. The worrisome part of the insecurity is that most in Roboh have difficulties cultivating their farms. Moreover, because villages like Bakin Gada, Ungwan Pada, Maikori, Dogon noma, that surrounds Roboh have all been attacked at different times, people find it difficult to venture far to their farms.”

“Now, this man and others would wait for when the kidnappers would call and ask for ransom. They would start borrowing, begging and selling anything to raise the ransom. After it’s paid, the kidnappers would come again, kill and again kidnapped,” he.said

 

 

 

 

 

 

Meanwhile, Samuel Aruwan, Commissioner, Ministry of Internal Security and Home Affairs, Kaduna State, said Security agencies have reported to the Kaduna State Government that bandits attacked worshippers and locals at Ungwan Fada, Ungwan Turawa and Ungwan Makama in Rubu general area of Kajuru local government area.

According to a statement issued by Aruwanon Sunday, the bandits stormed the villages on motorcycles, beginning from Ungwan Fada, and moving into Ungwan Turawa, before Ungwan Makama and then Rubu.

 

 

 

 

 

“In Rubu village, the bandits attacked worshippers in the Maranatha Baptist Church and St. Moses Catholic Church,” the statement said.

“Three locals were confirmed killed in the attacks. They were identified as

 

 

 

 

 

“Peter Madaki (Ward head of Ungwan Fada), Elisha Ezekiel (Resident of Ungwan Fada) and Ali Zamani (Youth leader of Rubu).”

“Two persons were left injured in the attacks: one Aniro Mai, and a yet-unidentified woman. An unspecified number of locals were also kidnapped, according to the received reports.”

 

 

 

 

 

“The bandits looted shops and carted away some valuables from the villages.”

“The Acting Governor , Dr Hadiza Sabuwa Balarabe, expressed deep sadness, and condemned the attack in the strongest terms. She sent her sincere condolences to the families of the deceased victims, as she prayed for the repose of their souls.”

 

 

 

 

 

“The Acting Governor also commiserated with the attacked churches, and prayed for the speedy recovery of the injured. Security patrols were being conducted in the general area as investigations proceed.”

BISHOP AMADI AND SON ADMIT KILLING WOMAN FOR RITUAL

BISHOP AMADI AND SON ADMIT KILLING WOMAN FOR RITUAL

POPULAR ABUJA PASTOR, CLERIC SON ADMIT KILLING WOMAN FOR RITUAL

 

The Nigeria Police Force in Abuja on Monday, 27 June, 2022 has confirmed the arrest of a Bishop amadi and his son, as they have been found to be responsible for the Kubwa P.W alleged ritual killing.

According to the police, both father and son have admitted complicity in the killing of the woman though each is pushing the actual act to the other.

 

 

 

 

 

 

A female mutilated corpse was dumped in Kubwa around P.W road by the side of the bridge in the early hours of Monday, 27 June, 2022 as passers-by noticed the mutilated parts and raised alarm.

A source disclosed that Bishop Amadi A. Amadi of Freedom Chapel International and his son, Pastor Kelechi Amadi, are allegedly connected to the killing.

They were both arrested after a Keke rider approached the police and told them that he conveyed the three sacks used in concealing the remains of the victim.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The source further disclosed that the son, Kelechi Amadi, told the Keke rider that the sacks were containing scraps and was asked to dispose of them at the P.W Bridge dumping site in Kubwa after he charged him N1,000 for his service.
The following morning scavengers known as Baban Bola broke the bags in search of scraped items, as they tore the sack just so they discovered the contents and alerted people.

The Keke rider in the morning while using the same route saw people gathered at the spot where he disposed of the sacks, he then stopped to see what was happening and realized it was the sacks he earlier disposed of that contained the mutilated body.
The Keke Rider voluntarily led the police to the church, where the Pastor and his Father, Bishop Amadi A. Amadi, were both arrested and handcuffed as they were led out of the church building by the Police around 3 pm on Monday, 27 June, 2022.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The police returned on Tuesday afternoon, 28 June, 2022 to seal the church after making further searches of the building in Kubwa.

The Kubwa alleged ritual killing has raised lots of eyebrows in the neighbor-hood of Abuja. After investigation, it was discovered that the Bishop and his son, Kelechi Amadi who is also a pastor admitted to the crime. Upon hearing the confirmation, the wife of the pastor Kelechi Amadi disassociated herself from her husband.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Kelechi Amadi is married to 29-year-old Mercy Amadi and they both have two kids. They have been married for almost four years now. After the Kubwa P.W ritual killing saga, the wife Mercy Amadi took to her social media and removed all the tags to her husband pastor Kelechi Amadi.

Her name on her Facebook page use to be Mercy Amadi but after the incident, she changed it to Mercy Onyinye Cyril.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

She also turned her marital status to single. Pastor Amadi who is a founder of a non-denominational prayer group known as the Company of Prophets, was arrested alongside his father for the Kubwa P.W ritual killing.

It was gathered that pastor Kelechi who is also called an apostle and a prophet was dismissed from the Nigerian Navy before he became a pastor. He has a couple of bad records from his past but it was said that God arrested him.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

After he repented he was then ordained by his Bishop father, Amadi A. Amadi as a pastor. He then grew into an apostle and then prophet pastoring one of his father’s churches. He was the head pastor of Freedom Chapel in Bwari Abuja.

It was reported that it was he who confessed that it was his father who is responsible for the act even though the father says otherwise. His wife Mercy Amadi now Mercy Onyinye Cyril has now disassociated herself from both her husband Apostle Kelechi and her father-in-law Bishop Amadi A. Amadi.

Brother of David Nwanmini, boy in Ekweremadu’s organ harvesting saga opens up on his real age

The younger brother of David Ukpo Nwanmini, an alleged victim of organ trafficking involving Senator Ike Ekweremadu and his wife in the United Kingdom, has opened up on his real age.

The younger brother whose name is Jonathan Ukpo Nwanmini, made it known that his elder brother who is the alleged victim, David,  is 25 years old, as opposed to the claims of him being 15 by the British Police.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

But the brother, who claimed to be 22 years old, told Vanguard that the victim is his elder brother.

“David is my elder brother because we are both of the same father with different mothers and we hail from Ebonyi State. I will be 22 years old by next month and David is 25 years old,” he said.

 

 

 

 

 

“I am aware that he travelled because he told me. He did not disclose the country he was travelling to. He simply told me he was going to school abroad.

“After some months of not hearing from him, I got his number from his girlfriend and called him. I asked about his studies and work.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

‘He said it was fine but that he was not working yet as he needed to go to school first before he could be given a working paper. I told him about our dad who was not feeling fine.

“This was the conversation we had this month since January when he travelled. He was staying with us here in Ikotun before he left. We both sell phone accessories. We spoke last week. We even spoke again this week.”
