A pavilion erected by the Evangelical Church Winning All (ECWA) for its youth conference scheduled to hold in Zangon-Kataf local government area of Kaduna state, from January 29 to 31, has been set ablaze by unknown hoodlums
Those behind it are yet to be known, so also is their motive. However, Nasir el-Rufai, governor of Kaduna, has condemned the destruction of the pavilion and ordered an investigation into the incident.
In a statement on Friday, Samuel Aruwan, Kaduna commissioner of internal security and home affairs, quoted el-Rufai as saying that the culprits must be punished.
Aruwan said, “The Governor of Kaduna State, Malam Nasir El-Rufai has condemned the burning of a pavilion arranged for a church conference in Zangon Kataf local government.
“The government of Kaduna state received a security report detailing the incident, which stated that a pavilion erected by the leadership of the ECWA Church ahead of its conference was set ablaze by unknown persons at a location near the Palace of the Agwatyap.
“The governor, who frowned at the incident, directed security agencies to carry out diligent investigation towards identifying and punishing the culprits.
