ECWA Plateau hosts 400 displaced Christians from Yobe

The Evangelical Church Winning All (ECWA) in Jos, the Plateau State capital, is hosting over 400 Christians from over 100 families. They fled Yobe State in the wake of the killings by the Boko Haram sect in the state. The Chairman, ECWA Emergency and Conflict Committee, Rev. Etannibi Alemika, spoke in Tudun Wada, Jos, where about 177 of the displaced Christians are being camped.
The church had assembled assorted food items and household essentials such as detergent, beverages, mats, blankets, mattresses and clothes for distribution to the displayed Christians. Alemika said: “We have over 400 of them: men, women, aged and children, who escaped the persecution going on, particularly in Damaturu and Portiskum. Many others have been killed in the Boko Haram organised attacks in Yobe State. The families taking refuge here are lucky to have escaped to Jos…”
