Radical Fulani Muslims killed one, wounded another and kidnapped five others in an attack on Haske Baptist Church in Manini Tasha village, Kaduna state. Survivors said the Islamists arrived in the village by motorcycle while the church was meeting. “They surrounded the church and started shooting,” one survivor said. “They shot at us randomly and at anyone they sighted.” Pray for the safe return of those who are still missing, and pray for peace for the families of those whose loved ones are missing or killed. Pray that their faith remains firm and that they can be a bold witness for Christ to their persecutors.
