According to a source, Mrs Jatau works with the Bauchi State Primary Health Care and is originally from Gombe, but married in Warji local government area.

 

Reports from the area indicated that Muslim youths mounted a search for the lady immediately after Jummaat prayers, but could not find her because she had been whisked away to safety.

Consequently, the irate Muslim youths destroyed properties belonging to Christians in area and set a few buildings ablaze.

 

It was gathered that a number of Christians including a Pastor of ECWA church were said to have been injured.

However, a Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) leader in the state said he has informed the Commissioner of Police and the Senior Special Assistant to Governor Bala Mohammed of the development.
