NIGERIA: Family Faces Second Violent Attack for their Faith

Sources: VOM USA, SDOK

The notorious rebel group, Boko Haram, is believed to have been responsible for a suicide bomb attack against a church on July 5th. Among the five casualties are Tabita Adamu and two of her eight children, as well as the church’s pastor and an elder. In 2012, Tabita’s brother Habila endured a gunshot to the face after being confronted by members of Boko Haram. Habila, whom VOM has since supported, gained international attention in 2013 after testifying before members of the U.S. House of Representatives on the threat of Boko Haram. In a private VOM interview, Habila recalls the details of the horrific event. To view a seven-minute videotaped report featuring his testimony, please click here.
