The Head Pastor of Governor’s Assembly church, Kafanchan in Jema’a Local Government Area of Kaduna State, Gideon Mutum has said bandits had on two occasions sent letters to him threatening to kill him if he did not renegade from supporting his people.

In the separate letters the bandits had sent to him, they indicated that his support for his kins men might be his albatross.

In a statement made available to Journalists in Kaduna at the weekend, the Church Secretary, Mr Eli Sajo Josiah, said the threat would not deter the pastor from doing what he felt was right.

“Our pastor is committed to the development of Southern Kaduna and would not be deterred by the threat,” the statement said.

According to the statement on July 12, 2021,  a letter was found around his car, threatening to take his life and those of his family.

“We will not allow anyone to politicise this threat.

The security personnel are on top of the matter with full backing of the police, DSS and SIB, the traditional council and the immediate community,” Josiah said.

“Our pastor, the church and the good work in the land would not diminish irrespective of the threat.

“Our fate is not different from the challenges of the people of God in the past like David, Paul, Joseph, Daniel and the three Hebrew boys,” it added.

The church urged for continuous prayers and expressed hope that the security agencies would soon apprehend the perpetrators and bring them to book.
