Pastor and 16 church members kidnapped in Nigeria
A pastor and 16 other members of his church have reportedly been kidnapped in an attack that left one person dead.
Rev Zakariah Ido and members of the Evangelical Church Winning All in Kaduna, including the pastor's daughter, were abducted in the early hours of Sunday.
A witness told local reporters that between 20 and 30 armed Fulani Muslim extremists were responsible for the attack.
The kidnapping took place as the church was hosting a choir service.
The Nigerian press has reported no contact has been established with the kidnappers.
According to a report by the Armed Conflict Location & Event Data Project (ACLED), approximately 1,930 deaths were attributed to Fulani militants in 2018 alone, nearly six times the death toll caused by terrorist group Boko Haram.
