The Kaduna-South Senator, Bar. Sunday Marshall Katung appealed for a one-month military intensive operation on its forest as terrorists burnt down a Catholic Seminarian to death in Fadan Kamantan, a community in Zangon Kataf Local Government Area.
It would recalled that the attackers invaded the residence of the Catholic Priest, Rev. Fr. Emmanuel Okolo on Thursday evening and set the entire Rectory ablaze burning to death a Seminarian, Na’aman Ngofe Danladi who was completing his training in the Catholic Priesthood.
In a statement he signed and issued to newsmen on Friday, Katung lamented that he was sad that evil had once again visited their peaceful community.
” I unequivocally condemn this horrific terrorist attack that claimed the life of our young Seminarian.
” Terrorism and violence against innocent citizens should never be justified nor be a part of our daily happening, noting such a cowardly and callous attack on our communities must not be allowed to continue.
” My thoughts are with the victims’ families, friends, and the entire Catholic community in Kaduna South Senatorial District and the entire state. I stand with the people of Fadan Kamanton, the Kurama community, and the Catholic Diocese at this tragic and difficult time.
Sen. Katung explained that the resurgence of terrorism on the Kaduna-Kachia Road by bandits is a direct affront to the federal government and in particular the security agencies. And this is the time to take the fight to the bandits and kidnappers.
” I appeal to the Security agencies to carry out a one-month intensive operation on the forest around Southern Kaduna to degrade the bandits and kidnappers. Anybody found to be aiding and abetting criminality shouldn’t be spared.
