The Evangelical Church Winning All, ECWA, has said that the continued stay of Leah Sharibu with Boko Haram insurgents was a clear indication that Christian are facing persecution because of their faith in Christ, according to DailyPost.
The church further stated that there is a strong attempt to eliminate Christians in the Northeast using insurgency.
Rev. Dr Stephen Gana made the observation in Dass, Bauchi state Tuesday during ECWA Northeast pastor’s conference.
He said the federal government was insincere, insensitivity and careless in curbing insurgency in the northeast region especially towards the rescue of Leah from Boko Haram insurgent
” Leah’s abduction by the insurgents testifies FG’s involvement in crime against Christian in the Northeast region, ” he said, describing Leah’s suffering as ‘ joy in Christ’
Gana added that the current division, corruption and disaster have bastardised the country and the church in its entirety.
He warned that Christians will resist any move to further kidnap their members by insurgents in the region.
Gana, therefore, asked for restrain and peace in Nigeria ahead of the 2019 election.
