PRESS STATEMENT (19th August, 2020)

 

Yesterday, 18th August, 2020, amidst a rigidly imposed punishing 24 hrs curfew that is 63 days today, armed Fulani militia invaded Unguwan Gankon village in Gora ward, Zangon Kataf LGA and killed two people and burnt 7 houses. Wary neighbors, however, came to the rescue and the murderers fled. The name of the victim are Kefas Malachy Bobai, a 30 year old farmer and father of three and Miss Takama Paul, 16, a student.

Throughout the Bible — and through all of history, for that matter — God's people have suffered and have been imprisoned or even killed for worshipping Him or reading His Word. They have been attacked, mocked and jailed by tyrannical rulers intent upon silencing them.

But despite incredible pressure, these faithful believers pressed into the Lord, even when earthly authorities tried to tear them away. Like the Apostle Paul, not even the threat of prison or death stopped them from spreading the Good News.

Accusing Fingers were tendered towards the Federal Government concerning the gruesome killings of individuals and Christians alike found in ethnic Nationalities in Kaduna State by the Christian Social Movement of Nigeria (CSMN).

Situation report coming from Azikoro town: Fulani herdsmen are all over the bush of Azikoro town. They come out every night in groups to kill people. Some pretend to be military men wearing military uniform in the day but attacking innocent people at night.
