Irate youths have set ablaze a Church and a Police station situated within the Narayi area in Kaduna metropolis following the death of a 19 year old boy.TVC News gathered that trouble started after a leader of the church engaged the teenager to work on a building project near a river.
Tesem Akende reports that the Church, and the police station where the clergyman ran to were burnt down.
Disturbed by the approaching rainy season, the lead shepherd of the Celestial church is said to have engaged a young man nearby to build a fence to serve as a shield against floodwaters from this river so precariously close to his worship centre. His worker then went to draw water, and according to people, never returned alive.
The anger of the people went beyond control, as they claimed the shepherd took the issue too lightly for comfort. They then resorted to burning down the church and they suspected there’s more to the death beyond what their physical eyes can see.
The shepherd was said to have given himself up at a police station, where youth in the area proceeded to demand for his release so they could deal with him.
Still boiling with anger, they also set the police station ablaze but the police said they have arrested one person for interrogation and promised to get to the root of the matter, and ensure justice is served on culprits.
