Not too long ago, the Nigeria Christian Graduate Fellowship (NCGF), Benin Chapter lost one of their own, Pastor Blessing Ehiorobo to an attack from the Boko Haram terrorist group in Bauchi.
To that effect, the fellowship has come out through a statement by its President, Mrs. Uche Chiejina to condemn the killing and the actions of Boko Haram in the Northern part of the country. The statement urged religious groups in the country to tolerate one another and respect the sanctity of human lives. The statement referred to the killing of their member as ‘barbaric, vexatious and unacceptable to the Christian community‘
The statement further urged security agencies at all levels to help secure lives and properties as is expected of them. The group was also quick to warn that the patience of Christians in the country should not be taking granted as the number of Christian worship centers being attacked by the terrorists have increased over time.
NCGF also called on Christians to be more prayerful and resist the attempt of the terrorists to make Christianity extinct in the Northern part of the country. The fellowship also wants relatives of the deceased members to be prayed for and supported.
