Borno State Governor, Babagana Zulum has called for an investigation into the demolition of a church and the death of two worshippers in Maiduguri.
The governor ordered a probe into the violent confrontation between a Joint Security Task Force operating with the Borno Geographical Information System (BOGIS) and EYN Church members at Maduganari, in Maiduguri.
It was gathered that the confrontation which occurred on Thursday has sparked outrage within the Christian community in Borno.
“These daylight murders and demolition of a church wouldn’t have happened at a mosque”, an indigene of the state-based in Lagos said.
Zulum, who now faces the task of proving that his administration is not bias toward the Christians, has condemned the shooting which left five persons currently hospitalized.
The governor, in a statement by his spokesman, Isa Gusau, commiserated with families of those who died and the injured.
He already telephoned the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) Chairman, Bishop Mohammed Naga to mourn with the Christian community and the EYN Church.
Zulum also invited the CAN leadership for a meeting scheduled for later today at the Government House. He further directed the Deputy Governor, Umar Kadafur to visit the hospital where the wounded are receiving treatment, to empathize and take over the cost of their treatment.
KanyiDaily had also reported how armed bandits attacked a Baptist Church in Kaduna, killed a medical doctor, and abducted many worshippers.
