The remains of Rev. Silas Yakubu Ali, the slain pastor of the Evangelical Church of Winning All at Kibori-Asha Wuce in Zango-Kataf Local Government Area of Kaduna State, has been laid to rest.

Unknown assailants had attacked and killed the cleric on Saturday, the state Commissioner of Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, first broke the news.

“The report stated that Ali departed for Kafanchan on Saturday, and was not heard from until his corpse was found by a search party early on Sunday at Kibori community, near Asha-Wuce, where he was apparently attacked and hacked to death,” the commissioner had said.

Communities, mostly in Atyap Chiefdom of the council in Southern Kaduna, have lately come under persistent attacks from suspected armed herdsmen, with dozens of fatalities.

Sympathisers in their hundreds trooped to the First ECWA Church, Samaru Kataf, where the burial service of the slain pastor was held on Wednesday.

Amidst tears, the cleric’s remains were buried in his Samaru family house at about 1:30pm.

General Secretary of the ECWA Church, Rev. Yunusa Sabo Nmadu, urged the governments to wake up to their constitutional responsibility of protecting the lives and property of Nigerians.

He also urged the Church to join hands and cry to God to take charge of the security situation across the country.

The officiating Minister, Rev. Jonathan Nkom, in his sermon, appealed to the bereaved family to take solace in God over the demise of beloved Rev. Ali.
