Suspected terrorists have killed the presiding pastor of Christ Nation International, Apostle Jerry Hinjari, in Adamawa State.
It was gathered that Hinjari was killed between Wednesday night and Thursday morning after the suspected terrorists forcibly took the pastor from his residence, near Eagles Path, Army Barracks Road, in Yola, the state capital.
According to SaharaReporters, a family member who spoke on condition of anonymity said “the bandits came to his house between 11 pm and 12 am on Wednesday and took him away”.
“When they forced their way into the living room, he asked them to name whatever they wanted he would give them; but they didn’t say a word, instead, they took him away.
“We found his lifeless body on Thursday afternoon around the Malkohi Displaced Persons’ camp, on the way to Mayo-Ine,” he said.
The state police spokesperson, SP Yahaya Nguroje, confirmed the tragic incident.
He said, “Yes, I can confirm that he (Hinjari) was kidnapped on Wednesday and his remains were discovered the following day.
“About now, the commissioner of police, Sikiru Akande has sponsored an investigation to unravel those behind the dastardly act. We assure the good people of the state that the perpetrators would be brought to justice.”
