Conversion: Islamic group seeks for persecution of pastor

Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC), has called for the prosecution of a pastor in Kaduna, Jonah Gangers.

Pastor Jonah Gangers is accused of “stealing” a Muslim girl, Sadiya Idris.

On Friday, MURIC director, Ishaq Akintola, in a statement, said Sadiya of Tudun Nupawa in Kaduna, was allegedly kidnapped in 2013 by Gangers who lived in Barakallahu, Kaduna and has his church there.

“Rev. Gangers and his accomplices took Sadiya to Plateau State, forcefully and illegally converted her and finally registered her as Christiana Gangers Joseph in a missionary school in the state.

The girl was kept in captivity for seven years (2013 – 2020) both in school and also in the Reverend’s house in Kaduna during the holidays as she was not allowed to step out alone.

The Islamic organization accused Gangers of abusing the terms of his bail and attempting to subvert the law.

The statement demanded that Gangers be re-arrested to get details of his accomplices from him.

Akinola insisted that those implicated be prosecuted along with the main suspect.

MURIC called Gangers’s claim that Sadiya was lost and he found her a “cock and bull story”, wondering why he did not report to the police or go to an orphanage.

Akintola warned that a dangerous game was playing out in the North, adding that Muslim children are being targeted by Christians who kidnap and take them to distant lands.
