Suspects arrested for setting church ablaze in Kaduna

The Kaduna State Government on Sunday said it had arrested three suspects in connection with Friday’s arson attack on St. Augustine Catholic Church, Tudun-Wada Kaduna.

A statement by the government spokesman, Samuel Aruwa, made available to news men in Kaduna on Sunday, said full investigation had commenced on the incident and those indicated will be prosecuted.

The government commended the resilience of the Church congregation who held their usual Sunday service in spite of the arson attack and said their courage is a loud rebuke to violence and bigotry, and a firm affirmation of the right to worship.


The government also applauded students of Kaduna Polytechnic who put out the Friday night fire which burnt the altar of the church.

Reports revealed that a state government team, led by Samuel Aruwan, spokesman of Governor Nasir Ahmed El-Rufai, had visited the church and conveyed the government’s message of sympathy to the priests and congregation.
