Na’aman Ngofe Danladi, a seminarian, was burned to death in Zangon Kataf Local Government Area of Kaduna State, and Senator Sunday Marshall Katung, who represents the Kaduna South Senatorial District, has spoken out against the incident.
The rectory of Rev. Fr. Emmanuel Okolo, a Catholic priest, was burned down by bandits on Thursday night, as reported by BANKPAWA. Also killed in the blaze was a seminarian who had only one month left to finish his degree.
On Saturday, Senator Katung responded by saying he was saddened that evil had returned to the tranquil neighborhood.
The awful terrorist attack that took the life of our young seminarian has my strongest condemnation.
He emphasized that acts of terrorism and other forms of violence against civilians should never be tolerated or accepted as part of normal life.
He believes that attacks like these on peaceful neighborhoods can’t be tolerated.
The whole Catholic community in the Kaduna South Senatorial District and the State of Nigeria are in my prayers for the victims and their loved ones. In this awful and trying moment, I am here to support the people of Fadan Kamantan Kurama and the Catholic Diocese,” he continued.
According to him, the federal government and, in especially, the security agencies have been insulted by the return of terrorist activity on the Kaduna-Kachia Road.
He urged law enforcement to conduct a month-long crackdown on criminals hiding out in the woods in and around Southern Kaduna.
He proclaimed that “no one should be spared” if they were proved to be providing material support to criminals.
