Leaders of north eastern Nigeria’s Church of the Brethren in Nigeria (EYN) said Boko Haram attacks have killed more than 300 Christians in the past week and forced the temporary closure of Kulp Bible College and many churches.
EYN President Samuel Dali said the headquarters of the church is under grave threat from the Islamic extremist insurgents who seek to impose Islamic law throughout the country. He said, “Boko Haram violence has been getting worse every day, and our members are fleeing the area by the thousands. Recent attacks in Borno and Adamawa states where are our churches are located have seen Boko Haram take over the Army base. As a result, about 350 Christians have been killed.”
