Christian Pastor’s Family Among Those Killed
Just when it seemed safe to sleep soundly in Jos, Nigeria, another group of militants attacked the nearby Mazah village. Rev. Huhu Dawat, a Church of Christ in Nigeria (COCIN) Pastor, recounted Saturday morning.
"It was at about 1:30 am when I heard a knock on my door. I went and opened the door but did not see anybody, so I went back into the house. A few minutes later we started hearing sporadic gun shots. It was then I escaped into the farmland near my house, but my family was not fortunate enough to escape too. My wife, daughter, son and grandson have all been killed."
