1Evil triumphs as long as good people remain silent. For many years now, Boko Haram has been terrorizing the Nigerian populace with impunity.
Initially Boko Haram was a tug organization targeting the government of Nigeria by bombing government organized rallies and UN facilities.
Unchecked, they abducted about 200 school girls, most of them are still at large till today.3

The government of Nigeria, so far, seems to be unable to handle this situation; evidently, the church through prayers and actions is the only hope. But the church has not yet fully engaged herself to fighting this evil. While the church has not yet responded as a body, the terrorist group is now unleashing great wrath on churches in the North Eastern part of Nigeria.

As a journalist from a local newspaper puts it “the security situation in Mubi, Adamawa State’s second largest city, keeps taking a turn for the worse as Boko Haram terrorists have resorted to destroying churches and killing and uprooting Christians from the predominantly Christian town in their bid to establish an Islamic caliphate and make Mubi its headquarters.”

4The terrorists had renamed the historic town “Madinatul Islam”, meaning the city of Islam and peace. This is the kind of peace the devil gives. Very Very ironic!2

“Residents trapped in Mubi confirmed through phone calls that the insurgents had ordered Christians to leave the city or denounce their religion and accept Islam or get killed.”

“Reverend Stephen, who escaped from the hands of the insurgents by a whisker, said the terrorists were going around setting ablaze any church they come across in Mubi.
The cleric said he was trapped in Mubi while trying to locate the whereabouts of his wife and children, adding that he fled after tracing them on Monday.”

“They warned us that whoever goes astray, will definitely meet him or her waterloo, so we had to abide by their rules for the fear of being killed. But immediately, my family and myself planned our exit out of the trouble town,” he revealed.

“Christians are killed by the insurgents on discovery that they cannot recite a part of the Koran known as Kalimatu Shahada and are not ready to denounce the name of Jesus Christ and embrace Islam,” he said.

“He added that the insurgents used fuel from petrol stations abandoned by their owners to burn the churches.” Also, the NBC News recently published a lengthy report on the atrocities that Boko Haram is infliction on innocent Nigerians. Please click here to read.  Alternate news can be found HERE

Displaced children, mothers and elderly people are sleeping on the roadsides, they are trying to cope with makeshift kitchens under the rain and sunshine at the road sides. The situation is very deplorable and inhumane.

The following is an excerpt from an email sent to the International coordinator of MPN by the MPN coordinator in Northern Nigeria:

Good evening Dad,
I hope that Mum, the children and the entire family are doing fine? I know you have been quite busy, I am always praying that you find time to rest.
The situation in the North-east has become so serious that needs an urgent divine intervention. Over the weekend we were in Yola for our usual annual conference, the program was seriously interrupted by the upsurge of the insurgency in Mubi. Hundreds of thousands were not only displaced from the Mubi, Michika, Madagali and Gwoza area, but wandered through the bush and the mountains for days. Many more had to escape into Cameroon through bush roads for safety. A four year old boy had to trek for 30km, family members are separated with parents not knowing where to locate their children, husbands not knowing where their wives are, everybody running for his dear life. It is a terrible situation.
Yola was filled to capacity with a family having between 30-40 people in a normal 3 bedroom flat. Women, children, the elderly and the vulnerable are helplessly roaming the streets of Yola with their loads on their heads. The refugee camps are filled to capacity with no food enough to cater for them.
Dad, the insurgence have taken over Mubi and planted their flag. There are threats of likely attacks on other areas. The military seems not to be in control, and many people are moving out of Yola, while neighboring states like Taraba are filled with people from Borno, Gwoza, Mubi, Michika and Madagali.
The situation is pathetic, the government seems not to have a solution while many suspect that politicians are trading their lives to settle political scores.
What can we do about this? The hands of the brethrens in this zone are weakened.
Please Dad whatever the Christian community in the South and around the world can do to help displaced brethren, we will be very glad.
Much thanks Dad, and regards to Mum.
Your Son.

What shall we do now….

We want to respond as MPN family; by purchasing tons of bags of rice and basic food ingredients and send to the refugee Christians in the North. We also want to purchase tarpaulin materials to make temporary tents to accommodate families cooking and sleeping at roadsides. Please, DONATE as generously as you can and also pass this information along to generate as much awareness as possible on what our brothers and sisters are going through in Northern Nigeria.
