Nigeria: Christians March in Protest of Killings
Updated: Mar 2
On 3 February, approximately 5 million Nigerian Christians marched and protested in 28 Nigerian states. The three-mile march was led by the General Overseer, Enoch Adeboye, of the Redeemed Christian Church of God in Lagos.
The walk was the culmination of a three day fast, requested by the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) to raise awareness and call upon President Buhari to take action against the senseless murders of Christians that have been taking place in the past few months by Boko Haram and their affiliates.
The protest was most closely linked to the death of Lawan Andimi, the late chairman for CAN in Adamawa state.
Adeboye had refrained from similar protests and actions in the past but decided to lead this march. Several politicians praised him for taking action. Vice President Yemi Osinbajo is a member of his congregation.

Thank the Lord for the solidarity displayed by the church in Nigeria.
Pray that God would uphold the many victims of violence all over the nation.
Pray for President Buhari, that he will be granted wisdom and strength and that God would use him to bless the nation of Nigeria.
Pray too that he may come to an understanding of the Gospel.
