CAN demands justice as 40-year-old man, Hassan Yahaya rapes woman in Kaduna Church


The Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, has called for justice after a 40-year-old man, Hassan Yahaya from Katsina state, allegedly lured a 25-year-old lady, identified as Grace, to First ECWA Church, Gidan Waya, Jema’a Local Government Area of Kaduna State and had carnal knowledge of her.

Luck ran out of the man, a Muslim, when he was caught last Thursday night, 29th June, 2023, inside the Church while committing the act.

Speaking to HOOKNINJAS on phone on Tuesday evening, the Kaduna State CAN chairman, Rev. John Joseph Hayab said, “When my attention was drawn to the illicit act, l quickly alerted the security to avert a situation where somebody or a group of persons will take the law into their hands to cause a breach of the peace.

“We are in a state that is governed by law; so, we are law abiding citizens and will ensure the full wrath of the law takes its cause on whoever that is found wanting.

“We will pursue the case to its logical conclusion by using legal means to ensure justice is done. This we are doing to ensure we understand ourselves through legal means so that whoever is found wanting should face the music and serve as a deterrent to others who want to use such evil intentions to cause confusion in the society.”

He explained that the police were invited and the suspected man apprehended for proper interrogation on the reason behind such an act in a place of worship.

Several calls and a text message to DSP Mohammed Jalige, the spokesman of Kaduna State Police Command were not responded to as of the time of filing this report.
