Nigeria: Pastor Survives Attack

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

A pastor
supported by VOM survived an attack by Muslim extremists on Friday, Aug. 10, according
to VOM contacts. At least seven gunmen entered an Ekillisiyar Yan’Uwa Nigeria (EYN) church compound
in Borno state, intending to kill
the pastor, his wife and three children.

gunman entered the room of the pastor’s 24-year-old son, but “God gave him the
courage and strength to push the man down,” VOM contacts said. The young man
was shot in the leg and fell to the ground as he fled his attacker.

The pastor ran from the
family’s house when he heard the gunshots, only to see his son lying on the
ground and gunmen shooting at him. Although the pastor was not hit, he also fell to the ground when
the gunmen fired at him. Thinking both men were either dead or injured,
the gunmen entered the house to search for the church key.

After confronting the
pastor’s wife and two other children, the gunmen ordered them to lie face down
on the floor. The family remained in the house as the attackers set fire to the
house and church. The woman and her children eventually escaped the fire and
hid in bushes near the church.

Apparently satisfied with the
burning buildings and persuaded that the pastor and his family were dead or
seriously injured, the gunmen fired their guns into the air while shouting, “Allahu
Akbar.” As the attackers left the scene, they unknowingly passed right by the
pastor and his family hiding in the bushes.

The family remained in hiding
through the night and took the oldest son to a hospital in Maiduguri the next
morning. He has been released from the hospital, and the family is staying with
another pastor in Maiduguri.
