Release International Prayer Shields, Nigeria


Nigeria

Rev Joseph Aketeh Bako was kidnapped from his home in Kaduna city in March: his death was announced in May. Ask God to comfort his family and church in Nigeria.


Nigeria

Pray for the families in Nigeria of six Christians murdered in an attack on a Christian-owned market in Taraba state in April. Islamic State West Africa Province admitted responsibility.


Nigeria

Religious violence is predicted to increase in Nigeria ahead of presidential elections next February. Pray against any attempt to exploit the elections and deepen inter-religious tensions.


Nigeria

Pray that the Government of Nigeria will take decisive action in response to Deborah’s death, to deter further atrocities of this kind.


Nigeria

Thank God that Christian students at Deborah’s college in Nigeria have refused to be drawn into the violence. Ask God to give His people courage and grace to resist retaliation.


Nigeria

Deborah’s death has provoked fresh calls for Nigeria to be divided into a Muslim north and Christian south ‒ and for every Christian in Sokoto state to be butchered. Pray in the opposite spirit, for peaceful co-existence.


Nigeria

The Sultan of Sokoto, the leader of Nigeria’s Muslims, condemned Deborah’s killing: extremists protested violently around his home, demanding the release of two arrested suspects. Other faith leaders have failed to condemn the murder. Pray that justice and religious tolerance will prevail.
