Five members of Ekklesiyar Yan’uwa a Nigeria (EYN, the Church of the Brethren in Nigeria) were killed in a recent Boko Haram attack in Adamawa State.
Reporting that the incident happened in a no-network area of Adamawa State, EYN district church secretary Mildlu Rev. Bitrus Kabu said that Wakara Village was attacked from 7-9 p.m. on Thursday, June 8.
He said five men were killed by the attackers, and the attack came as a surprise because they have experienced relative peace for some months in the area. “We buried all,” he said.
The attackers went away with some food items, motorcycles, and other things, leaving the village unoccupied as people fled for their lives to other places for refuge.
