ECWA Pastor And 2 Church Members Killed By Terrorists In Niger State by jmoore(m): 8:40am On May 15
No fewer than three villagers, including an unnamed Pastor of Evangelical Church of West Africa ECWA at Majure village, 10 kilometers to Sarkinpawa in the Munya local Government of Niger state, have been killed by unknown gunmen.

THISDAY learnt that two other members of the Church were also among those killed in the incident that took place on Monday evening.

It was learnt that those killed were on their farms near the church when they were attacked by the assailants.

According to an eyewitness, a Pastor of another church, his wife and child are still missing, raising suspicion that they could have been among those kidnapped.

One of the remains of the two slain ECWA members according to the eyewitness was interred late Monday evening while the other is about now being buried.

State CAN Secretary, Pastor Raphael Opawoye confirmed the death of the two church members to ThISDAY on Tuesday morning.

The gunmen according to reports numbering over 50 and riding on motorcycles stormed the Majure and adjoining communities shooting sporadically resulting in the stampede and death of the villagers.

The gunmen were said to have kidnapped not less than 20 villagers, mostly women and children, and took them to an unknown destination.

ThISDAY was told that a bus conveying no less than 10 passengers was also waylaid and its driver and passengers kidnapped. The vehicle was said to have been used to convey the victims.

The attack by the gunmen, according to reports, was not countered by the local security around the area because they had no fuel to power their operational vehicles to go after the attackers.

Sources told ThISDAY that a few days back, the head of the vigilantes had approached the management of Munya local government for money to purchase fuel, a request the council did not honour for lack of funds.

All efforts to get confirmation of the incident from the Local Government Council Chairman Alhaji Aminu Najume, was abortive as his cell phone was not connecting.

The Police in the state are also yet to speak on the attack.

terrorism is being used to cash out from a generous oil money system. If the oil money is not in view of evil politicians and their foot soldier, no bandits will leave his village and come back to abduct people for ransom.

Since na Pastor and members of a church them kill, you'll see comments like:

Comment 1: Terrorism is bad. Politicians are using it to cash out.

Comment 2: Let's restructure this country.

Comment 3: Tinubu is a failure

But if say na African traditional religion priest and practitioners them kill, you'll see comments like:

Comment 1: Why the gods no save them? Hahaha

Comment 2: Let them go and meet their ancestors.

Comment 3: Juju no get power.

Guys stop hating on the religion of your people even if you don't practice it.

Rest in peace to the dead.

If you restructure now,what will you do about the Fulani herdsmen, who have taken over most parts of the East? I even heard that, Fulani herdsmen are about to install Emirs in Anambra and Enugu States.

Poor Pastor, may his soul rest in peace tongue

That sarkin-pawa axis was prone to criminal activities as far back as 2010. There's a old colonial road that links to Kaduna -Abuja express road. Forested/rocky/Hilly, very vast ungoverned territory. We do pass there to Alheri Foundation/Camp Kaduna. First lady, Turai Yar'adua had empowerment programs there, 2009. Shiroro-Munya don turn wetin b dis cry

Ban cattle herding.
Anybody bearing arms should be shot at sight!

Or are there no Fulani in Ghana, why are they not practising this madness?

The orphans of d desert
Shebi they dem talk say these areas are more populated,

The reality is that nothing dey these areas

And Instead of them to welcome and embrace things that brings development and wealth, they rather hold on tightly to clutching on to their backwardness, inhumane habits.

ECWA is in remote northern areas. They got EMS school in Jos for children of missionary works who have been murdered on duty. This orphans are plenty, am talking of before Boko Haram/Bandits era. It's that bad
