Church property attacked by Muslims in Kano state, Nigeria

( - Muslim youths launched an attack on the Evangelical Church Winning All (ECWA) premises in Kano state in northern Nigeria on May 19, destroying two church buildings and a pastor's residence.

The attack reportedly grew out of a land dispute. "The problem started when some Christian youths of ECWA church were converted to Islam," said the Rev. Lado Abdul, chairman of ECWA district in Kano. "They swore that the ECWA church would not remain in the area, as they would do everything possible to chase Christians out from Kiru."

Abdul also lamented the denial of rights to Christians in Kano by area Muslims. "Here in Kano, nobody gives you land to build a church," he said. "The old churches built before now are being demolihed for reasons no one can easily grasp." Four suspects have been arrested in connection with the attack and police are reportedly continuing to investigate the situation. (Source: Compass Direct)

Pray that the believers of this church will be bold in faith in the midst of opposition. Ask God to work in the hearts and lives of militant Muslims in Nigeria, drawing them to repentance and faith in Him (Acts 9:1-19). Pray for peace throughout Nigeria.
