The militants attacked the village of Atang in Jema’a County, Kaduna State, on April 22. During this attack, they kidnapped the son of the chief of this area, named Emmanuel Iliya. Mr. Iliya is 47 years old and a father of two. The kidnappers have asked for $75,000 in ransom.

Next, on Thursday April 23, militants attacked the village of Kujeni in nearby Kajuru County. During this specific attack, the group killed at least one man named Geofrey Zakka. They also burned down more than two dozen houses and the local Evangelical Church Winning All (ECWA) building, including the pastor’s home. Then later that day, militants killed a man named Thomas Micah who was working his farm in another Kajuru county village. Thomas is survived by his wife and seven children.
