The affected churches were Maranatha Baptist Church and St. Moses Catholic Church, both located in Rubu, according to Kaduna State Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan

“On a sad note, security agencies have reported to the Kaduna state government that bandits attacked worshippers and locals at Ungwan Fada, Ungwan Turawa and Ungwan Makama in Rubu general area of Kajuru local government area,” Mr Aruwan said in a statement.
