BENIN: Pastor's Wife Killed by Islamists

Pastor Amadin leads a church in a Muslim community in northern Benin. Three Islamic extremists visited his house while he was away and his children were in school. The men attacked his wife with acid, pouring it into her eyes and forcing her to drink it. When neighbours heard her screaming, they rushed to the house, and the attackers fled. Pastor Amadin’s wife was taken to the hospital but died three weeks later. Her funeral took place on 19 May 2023. Front-line workers ask for prayers for Pastor Amadin and his children as they grieve.
