Muslim youths attack and stab Christian man for not fasting
A Christian man, Francis Emmanuel, on Wednesday narrowly escaped death as a gang of six youths, believed to be Muslims, armed with daggers stabbed him severally at a restaurant in Kakuri, Kaduna.

They accused him for not fasting.

Tension flared after the incident as the man was rushed to St. Gerald Catholic Hospital about a kilometre from Sokoto Street, Kakuri, where the incident happened.


Kaduna State Governor Nasir El-Rufai, on learning about the development rushed to the hospital to see the victim and promised he would get the culprits to face justice.

Emmanuel who almost lost his right armed from wedging off cuts, also sustained deep machete cuts on various parts of his body, especially around his left chin and back.

The 41 year old man who spoke with journalists on his sick bed under severe pains from the attack, said he was taking his lunch when the boys numbering about six descended on him because he was not fasting.
“I went to buy wood to do some work. When I came back I bought food to eat. As I was eating about six Hausa boys came and asked me whether I am a Muslim or a Christian. I did not answer them. They asked why am I not fasting? I told them that I am not a Muslim.
“Before I knew it, one of them slapped me. As I stood up, the rest came and surrounded me and started attacking me with knives. I don’t know them. Nobody could come to my aid because of the type of dangerous knives they were carrying.
“They used cutlasses, scissors and knives on me. I became unconscious, I don’t even know who brought me to the hospital,” he said.
The state police has been given the mandate to fish out the culprits so that they could be brought to book.
