Friends, Open Doors has just received a call for prayer from Nigeria. During the evening of April 29, a group of armed Boko Haram members invaded the Christian community of Kuda which is in the Madagali area of northeastern Nigeria.
The terrorists surrounded the community around 8pm and went door to door, killing as many as 25 people, according to a VOA report.
When community members and security agents were preparing for the burial of the slain the next day, Boko Haram members were spotted approaching for a second attack on the community. The funeral preparations were abandoned as the bereaved believers, sympathizers from neighboring communities and security agents fled. Since the attack many more villagers have fled the town.
Christian leaders in the area told Open Doors, “We are in danger, we have no one to fight for us to end this killing of our people.”
Field workers with Open Doors asked supporters to:
Please pray for the Lord’s grace to be on the church in Madagali area as they face this renewed instability.
Pray for the Holy Spirit to be at work in the lives of all those affected.
Pray that security will be restored soon.
