Governor Nasir El Rufai of Kaduna state has directed the immediate closure of two churches, a seminary and a church-owned hospitals and secondary school in Saminaka, Lere Local Government Area of the State.

This was contained in a statement signed by his spokesman, Samuel Aruwan on Wednesday in Kaduna.

According to Vanguard publication, the affected bodies are: Theological Seminary of Northern Nigeria, (TSNN), Shalom Comprehensive College, Assemblies of God Church, AGC, Assemblies of God Church (Jerusalem) and AGC Evangelist Hospital, also in Saminaka.

El-Rufai disclosed that the closure was to avoid the eruption of violence among factions of the congregations whose leaderships’ positions he described as, “principally to preserve their personal interests with little concern for the common good, and the peace and security of Kaduna State”.
