Today Tuesday 10th March, 2020, were were greeted at the Hausa Christians Foundation with the sad news of the abduction of the wife of another revered Church Leader in the Hausa Land, the Wife of the Anglican Bishop of Bari Diocese, at Gidan Mato, Bari, Kano State, Mrs. Saratu Zubairu and the Diocesan Secretary, Miss Deborah.
In the early hours of Tuesday morning at around 2:30am, the Christian Community of Gidan Mato Bari where the Cathedral of the Bari Anglican Diocese and the Bishop’s Court are situated, encountered the unimaginable as unknown gunmen laid siege on the entire locality and kidnapped the Bishop’s wife Mrs. Saratu Zubairu and the Diocesan Secretary Miss Deborah.
Despite the fact that the kidnappers forced the Diocesan Secretary to bring every cash available that was said to be in the Diocesan office, they still went ahead to abduct the two of them and are now demanding for a huge ransom. This tragic incidence happened when the Bishop, Right Revered Ado Zubairu was in Jos.
The Hausa Christians Foundation (HACFO) together with the entire members of Bari Anglican Diocese wish to call on all Christians around the world to join us in prayers for the release of these daughters of Zion so that the work of the ministry may continue to flow without any hindrances.
Brethren, indeed, we are in perilous times. The situation in Nigeria is terribly painful especially for the Christians.
We are certain that the God who delivered Peter Paul, Silas and many of God’s Children from prison, shall in the same way set His daughters free from the hand of these evil doers.
IT IS WELL WITH THE RIGHTEOUS!
