Another Attempt on the Life of the Bishop of Jos

For the second time in 18 months an attempt has been made on the life of Bishop Benjamin Kwashi, the Bishop of Jos, Plateau State in Northern Nigeria.

Early on the morning of Tuesday July 24 at 2.15 a.m. a gang of men, more than five in number bound the two security guards at the gates of his compound and locked up the four domestic staff,

Armed with guns and knives, they then battered through the doors of the house, went upstairs and marched Bishop Ben Kwashi downstairs and outside.

They told Bishop Ben they were going to kill him.

Read the rest here.

Islam is strong in Northern Nigeria not-so-by-the-way.

Folks, the persecution of our Nigerian brethren is very real. Yet they are standing for the truth without wavering. We need to be praying for them and supporting them.
