Boko Haram Kills Deeper Life Pastor

A Deeper Life Bible Church pastor and three other Christians have been killed by Muslim extremists called Boko Haram in Maiduguri, Borno State, Northern Nigeria in a renewed sectarian violence.

As a result of the wanton killings of Christians in the north, the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN has told Christians to use whatever means to defend themselves when attacked by the fanatics. It was mourning in the Deeper Life Bible Church in Maiduguri when the news of the death of Pastor Michael Medugu, a District Pastor, was made known to church members.

The pastor had just attended the Tuesday leadership meeting of the Deeper Christian Life Ministry when he was hacked down by a gang of extremists along with three others. P.M.NEWS gathered that the pastor had left the meeting to go to his pharmaceutical shop where he was dispensing drugs to a customer at about 7.05 p.m. on Tuesday when the enemies struck.

He left behind his wife and seven children to mourn him. His senior pastor, Ama Awokoya wept when he was told that Medugu had been killed, shortly after he asked Deeper Life faithful to pray against attack on Christians in the Muslim dominated region. Others killed with him were identified as Obinna, Mr. James and Baba Joy.

They were Medugu’s neighbours. The attackers were said to have escaped after carrying out the dastardly act. CAN President, Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor, who was sadened by the news called on Christians to brace up to defend themselves and family when attacked by the Muslim extremists, saying that the killings were no longer tolerable.
