    Increasing Attacks on Christians in Borno State Go Unreported

    03/14/2019 Washington, D.C. (International Christian Concern) – International Christian Concern (ICC) has learned that earlier today, around 6:00 a.m., Boko Haram insurgents launched an attack on Ngurhlavu village of Lassa in Askira-Uba local council area of southern Borno State. Most of the villagers were able to flee into the bush, but the insurgents burned down six homes, destroyed the EYN Church (Church of the Brethren), killed one person, and abducted two sisters, Stella Ibrahim and Plungwa Ibrahim.

    Recalling the attack, a senior executive of the EYN Church, who wished to remain anonymous, said that their local pastor called around 6:00 a.m. to report the attack. He shared, “I could hear desperation in his voice, just coming out of the bush. His voice sounded completely demoralized as he was saying only God… We don’t know what else to do! There’s no security presence here.” The insurgents dropped a concealed improvised explosive device which a church member named Avi Lassa stepped on. Avi was killed on the spot.

    Why can I not find this event from a legitimate source?
    Those who seek God with all their heart will find Him and be given sight. Those who seek their own agenda will remain blind.

      This sounds legitimate to me, it's consistent with what has been happening to Christians in Borno State for years. It's the worst part of the worst country in the world to be a Christian in terms of martyrdom.
      This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, a hope both sure and reliable...

          Thousands of Christians die daily by Islamic jyhad like this by Biko Harlem, hamas, hezbollah, plo, taliban, al qaida, etc
          But those Christian deaths don’t trouble the leftist media, nor concern their narrative.

          That’s the reason you never see coverage of it.
          Jesus is YHWH the eternal Great I AM.

          • " I YHWH the LORD, the first, and with the last; I AM He. Thus saith YHWH the LORD the King of Israel, and his redeemer YHWH the LORD of hosts; I AM the first, and I AM the last; and beside me there is no God.” Isaiah 41:4,44:6
          • "And [the son of Man] laid his right hand upon me, saying Fear not; I AM the first and the last: I AM He that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I AM alive for evermore. These things saith the first and the last, which was dead, and is alive" Rev 1:17, 2:8
