Dec 25, 2012 – Boko Haram Christmas Eve Attack In Yobe ECWA Church Kills Pastor & 5 Worshippers

Pope Benedict XV1 desires an end to the brutal violence against Christians as well as churches in Nigeria, however, the attacks remain unchecked.

The most recent suspected Boko Haram attack was carried out on Monday December 24 in a village called Peri close to Potiskum, the capital city of Yobe, the core of Boko Haram deadly attacks..

When Christ-followers in an ECWA church in Peri village gathered to observe Christmas eve, some unknown gunmen attacked them, killing 6 people, along with the pastor, and setting the church ablaze, Peri residents and police disclosed this on Tuesday.

A group of gunmen came into the village at midnight and went straight to the church… they opened fire on them, killing the pastor and five worshippers. They then set fire to the church,” said Usman Mansir, resident of the village.

Christian Association Of Nigeria in Yobe’s head, Mr Idi Garba mentioned that many worshippers at the ECWA church “are still missing.”

“I have been informed that six bodies have been recovered,” Garba said, adding that some who lived near the church “fled their homes during the attack and it is assumed that they are still hiding in the bush.”

According to residents, the gunmen also burnt several houses around the church.

DSP Adamu Salihu, Yobe state police spokesman also confirmed the attack today.

      The Lord has not forsaken you. He has directed me to pray for the persecuted in your nation. That means that He likely has many other Spiritual warriors praying against the evil that is being done there against Christians. I am praying for wives and families of the leaders who were murdered for being faithful servants to the Lord. I am praying the evil spirits will depart from inside the bodies of the Boko Haram terrorists, and I am praying against the powers and principalities that exercise spiritual rule over those evil murderers.

      Each of you can use the POWERFUL name of Jesus to force the evil spirits to depart the Boko Haram terrorists. Each of you can use the name of Jesus to pray against the powers and principalities that command those evil spiritual forces in your nation.

      Read Mark, chapter 5 to see how over 3,000 demons greatly feared one Jesus Christ. Those demons knew about the authority of Jesus and acknowledged that He is the Son of the Living God, and feared that the torment they would suffer at His command would come early.

      Jesus has delegated His authority to you and me, if you have His Holy Spirit living inside of you, so that we can rid faithful Christians of the evil done to us by Satan. Please join me in praying that your nation become completely Christian, and that all spirits serving Satan will be overcome by the faithful prayers and obedient acts of Christians. God Bless. a servant ofJesus Christ

    Pls boko haram has ntin to do wit islam.,spare islam pls and pls. Statistic has shown dat 80percent of boko haram victims frm attack are muslim eg d first attack in kano remain record d highest in terms of casualty and heading a thousand of muslim corpes discover. Then if boko haram is a associated to islam,i think is nt fair. How many christians were caught in gombe,sokoto, kaduna and even d attack in Bayero university kano taking part in attacking churches?.I solely bliv dat dis boko haram stuff is jst a sect of people dat are doing dis 4 both political and some selfish agrandisement. In islam any 1 dat kill a soul intentionally is jst as if dat person has killed d whole of mankind or humanity. Dis act is evil and every gud and truthful muslim knws dat does nt preach violence. Finally,is only GOD dat can judge dis evil act.
