Nigeria

A senior church leader from Borno State, Nigeria, estimates that the Islamist militant group Boko Haram has killed over 20 000 people so far, Christians being one of its main target groups. He knows of 35-40 pastors that have been killed. “Only the Person of Jesus Christ can stop Boko Haram,” he said. Another senior leader from Borno reported 70 of his 150 churches destroyed. Media reports tend to underplay the terrible violence of Boko Haram terrorist, who have the ability to appear suddenly in a new place making difficult for the Nigerian military to protect the population from them. Pray to the person who is able to stop Boko Haram through His resurrection power, that He will intervene to save His people and other innocent civilians.
