A Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) pastor has been killed by Fulani herdsmen.
Pastor Luka Ubangari who ministered in the church at Unguwan Anjo, near Godogodo in the Jema’a Local Government Area of Kaduna State was returning from a missionary visit to another community when he was shot and killed after being ambushed while on his motorcycle on Sunday, August 21.
Few days to the pastor’s murder, the state’s Governor, Nasir el-Rufai had visited certain towns where he condemned the senseless incessant killings by herdsmen and made assurances to arrest the culprits.
An eyewitness said, “We were happy that Governor Nasir el-Rufai visited and assured us of improved security and that the killers would be found and punished.”
“To our shock, Pastor Luka Ubangari was ambushed, shot and killed as he was riding his motorcycle after an evangelical visit to Golkofa. He was killed by Fulani men who were out to remove us from our ancestral lands.”
It is obvious the Governor’s visit did nothing to deter them.
