Suspected thugs have allegedly attacked Christian’s during a prayer walk procession in Ayingba, Kogi State, leaving scores of believers injured.
A victim of the attack known as Bishop David Sanda, posted on his Facebook timeline as thus;
“Yes, I was beaten and molested by ‘suspected’ Vigilante and banned SARS operatives during our prayer walk in Anyigba today.
In the train was Evang Emma Ibrahim, Pst Silas Edogbo, Pst. Sam of Dunamis and sevaral other ministers leading a crowd of close to 400 youths. They stopped us tore the Nigeria flags we were holding and the banner saying “Lord, Heal our Land” and asked us to move to a Church.
Following a previous counsel by the State CAN Chairman (Bishop John Ibenu), I led the crowd to the nearby Dunamis Church and while on our knees praying at the Church they came led by Prince Ishaq Okolo (SSA on Security of Dekina LGA who is currently vying for the local government chairmanship).
The hoodlums barged into the Church premises and started beating us while we were still on our knees in prayer. These fools (only fools disregard God, Church and Prayers) alleging that I was coordinating the prayer walk came hard on us the brother of the SSA then jacked me, tore my clothes, slapped and beat me with woods, cut my bishopric crucifix and told me Anyigba is not a Christian town. I answered that Jesus is Lord over the land and I received a second round of beatings by some folks following him.
They broke the windows of the Dunamis Church, entered in, stabbed a security of the Dunamis Church on his hand and destroyed several plastic chairs. They went away with Pst Silas and only released after a long while. The videos are on social media. May God have mercy on our land. Please pray for Anyigba. Pray for Nigeria”.
