Kaduna State Government has confirmed the killing of a cleric in Igabi, and a community leader in Jema’a LGA, Kaduna state. Confirming the incidents on Saturday, Commissioner, Ministry of Internal Security and Home Affairs, Kaduna State, Mr. Samuel Aruwan said, the security agents informed the Kaduna State Government that armed bandits invaded Kawaran Rafi village village in Igabi local government area, and killed one Danleeman Isah, the Chief Imam of the village.

According to the statement, the bandits moved straight to Isah’s residence, and in what appears to be a pre-meditated murder, shot him dead and left the location without taking any items or hostages.

“The murder of the cleric has been linked to his vocal stance against the killing and kidnapping of citizenry by bandits.

“It is of a similar ilk to the killing of Ardo Musa Layi of Kajuru local government, who was kidnapped and killed by armed bandits in October 2020 for his advocacy against killing, kidnapping and cattle rustling.
