March 18, 2013 – Boko Haram Destroyed 50 Out Of 52 Catholic Churches In Maiduguri Borno State – Rev Ituah
Rev. Father Jerome Ituah, the parish priest of Christ the King Catholic church in Kurudu, Abuja said the dreaded Islamic sect, Boko Haram has destroyed 50 out of the 52 Catholic churches in Maiduguri, Borno State.
In a church service on Sunday, the Rev. father revealed that he visited Maiduguri last week and to his surprise faithful church members were conducting services under the sun and rain because their churches have been destroyed by the Jihadist sect.
“Out of the 52 catholic churches in Maiduguri diocese, 50 of them have been destroyed by Boko Haram. Yet the faithful are not discouraged of their faith. You would always see them worshipping under rain and sun in open places at the site of their destroyed places of worship,” he stated.
He used the opportunity to urge faithful catholics to pray for their church members in Maiduguri and other volatile states for divine protection.
