Gunmen Invade Living Faith Church, Abduct Members

Insecurity has been a major challenge in Nigeria. Various regions have been the center of attack especially the north. The recent victim of the attacks by unknown gunmen is Living Faith Church (also known as Winners Chapel) which was founded by Bishop David Oyedepo.

During the weekend, suspected bandits attacked a branch of the church in Kogi State. The church was situated at Osara community, along Lokoja-Okene road in Adavi Local Government Council of the state.

According to reports, the bandits interrupted the meeting in the church and kidnapped three of its members. They shot several times to scare people around before they took their victims to their destination. Their whereabouts are still unknown.

On Monday evening, the Chairman of Adavi Local Government Council, Joseph Omuya Salami, confirmed the incident to journalists through his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Habeeb Jamiu.

Jamiu stated that Salami had visited the church alongside the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) of Osara Division after the sad event. Besides, he said that efforts are being made by the council with security agents in the vicinity. This was to ensure that the victims regain their freedom unhurt.

Reactions to the sad incident
Bryan Kenneth said, ‘’This is a typical example that it is not all about prayer. We have to pray and protect ourselves too. May God protect us in this country.’’

Evans Wisdom commented, ‘’The worst part is that the so called gunmen these days do not have the fear of God.’’

Uchenna Egbuchunam posted, ‘’I pray that God will demonstrate his power upon His children for his own name sake. May the good Lord save His heritage from the destruction of the evil perpetrators.’’

Ikenna Collins said, ‘’All the pastors and the reverends that have refused to speak against the terrorists, the killings of innocent people and the evil government in Nigeria; this is just the beginning of what you are going to witness.’’
