Angry youths burn down church,Police station in Kaduna


There was confusion Thursday morning in Kaduna State when youths numbering about 200 burnt a Church and a Police station in Narayi in Chikun local government area of Kaduna.

DAILY POST gathered that trouble started following the death of a boy who worked for the White garment Church.

The rampaging youths burnt down the Church and the Police station when they demanded that the Police in Narayi hand over to them the pastor in charge of the church where the young man died.

It was gathered that the Police had taken the pastor into protective custody after he had reported that a youth doing some construction work for the church had died in the process.

When our correspondent visited the affected Police station and the Church, heavily armed policemen in several trucks were seen on ground to forestall any breakdown of law and order.

An eyewitness said that the hoodlums outnumbered the Police personnel on duty, hence they ran away for safety, leading to the burning of the Police station by the angry youth.

He said that the youths also made away with no fewer than seven motorcycles belonging to policemen as well as vandalising a Honda Accord vehicle belonging to an officer.

The Church was still burning around 9:30am when DAILY POST correspondent visited the scene of the incident.
At the Church premises, four other buildings were pulled down, while the church was razed down completely.
