Nigeria

Officials from Ekklesiyar Yan’uwa a Nigeria (EYN, the Church of the Brethren in Nigeria) have shared reports of last week’s violent attacks in Maiduguri, a large city in the northeast. At least six people were killed in the suicide bombings.

In another violent incident, at least 19 people were killed when gunmen attacked a church in a small village in Nigeria’s Benue state last week.

Pray that peace may prevail in Nigeria, where people continue to live with the fear and reality of Boko Haram attacks and violent clashes between herdsman and farmers.
