I got another sad text from our Nigerian friend today that read, “ Some of our Missionary friends have been attacked up north in an area called Jos, in the Plateau State. Uncle Bayo Famonure and family at Gana Ropp, his wife and two sons were shot. They have been evacuated to the hospital. PLEASE PRAY.”
Jos is located just northeast from the capital city of Abuja.
Moments later, I received the miraculous follow up message, “Yes, shot in the head but bullet didn’t enter. It’s a miracle. Shot in feet but missed the bones. Just praise God. Mummy is stable but a bullet in her back. Adua and Victor shot in the feet but we’re all chatting.”
Unfortunately, the Jihadi Muslim attacks on Christians is happening almost every day in Nigeria.
On average, one Christian was killed every day in Nigeria for their faith, last month, in April.
The attacks on Uncle Bayo and his family took place in the Plateau State, where Christians are constantly the targets of marauding jihadists that want to bring all of Nigeria under Sharia Law.
Just over a week ago, Yusuf Pam (pictured below), sustained cuts from a machete attack by Muslim Jihadists on April 26 in the Plateau state of Nigeria.
Please pray for the Nigerian people and share information with your friends, family, and churches about the persecution that Christians are going through.
