Gunmen suspected to be herdsmen on Sunday night killed one Pastor Luka Ubangari of Redeemed Christian Church of God at Shawa village, near Godogodo, in Jema’a Local Government Area of Kaduna State.

Ubangari was said to have been ambushed, shot and killed while returning from evangelism to Golkofa village.

The incident occurred few days after Governor Nasir El-Rufai condemned incessant herdsmen killings during his visit to the area.

El-Rufai had described the killings as ‘senseless’ and promised that perpetrators are arrested and punished.

A source, who craved anonymity, noted that despite the governor’s promise herdsmen, “who are out to remove us from our ancestral lands, continue to kill our people.”

“We were happy that the Governor (Nasir El-Rufai) had visited and assured us of improved security and that the killers would be found and punished.

“To our shock, Pastor Luka Ubangari was ambushed, shot and killed as he was riding his motorcycle home after an evangelical visit to Golkofa.”
