Boko Haram ‘Mistake’ 750 Churches for Firewood

The Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) has said 750 churches have so far been burnt by Islamic terrorists, Boko Haram. While calling on the Federal Government to compensate families of those killed by the insurgents, the Christian body noted with concern that the church has been a major victim of the horrendous terrorist attacks in Nigeria. PFN National President, Rev. Felix Omobude at its emergency National Advisory Council meeting at Ajao Estate in Lagos, Thursday, said, “We have lost at least 750 churches in the North to attacks by terrorists. Our worry of late is that churches that are making efforts to rebuild are facing difficulty in that part of the country to secure necessary permit.”
“We do not want to believe that there is deliberate effort to discriminate against the church, even though churches in the North have over the years, experienced difficulty with obtaining necessary approvals for their buildings,” he added. He further called on federal government to expressly approve applications by churches to rebuild their place of worship and schools.
