ECWA Expresses Worry Over Christian Persecution

The newly installed President of the Evangelical Church Winning All (ECWA), Rev. Stephen Panya Baba, has expressed worry over rise in the number of persecuted Christians.

He made the observation during his inaugural remarks at the ECWA headquarters in Jos, when he formally took over from Dr. Jeremiah Gado.

The new ECWA leader regretted that the activities of Boko Haram and Fulani herdsmen have swelled the ranks of widows and orphans in many churches.

He therefore, called on governments at all level to show greater resolve at stopping the carnage before people resort to self-defence.

According to him, “Government must rise to the occasion and put an end to this wicked plan to annihilate Nigerians, especially Christians, in the Middle Belt region and zones of Plateau, Benue, Taraba, Southern Borno and Southern Kaduna and other parts of the northeast because the corporate existence of our dear country, Nigeria, is being threatened.”

Guardian reports that the President also called for intensified action by government to secure the release of the remaining Chibok girls, and Leah Sharibu, who is still being held by Boko Haram for refusing to deny her Christian faith.
