Published

on

PIC 3 CHURCHUnknown to many, the building donated to All Saints’ Anglican Church in Aninnri Local Government Area of Enugu State by Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, is in fulfilment of a vow he made to God many years ago.

Ekweremadu, who was speaking during the dedication of the church building yesterday, said even as he saw homelessness while growing up, he made a covenant with God to build a church for him if successful in life.

Recalling a serious health challenge he passed through and that only God saved him, the Deputy Senate President said: “I said, God, because of these challenges surrounding me, if you make me successful in life, I will build a church for you.

“And from that day, it has been one progress or the other. Today is a very important day in the life of my family. It is the most important day in my life because God has given us the opportunity to redeem our pledge and covenant.”

The Primate of the Anglican Communion, the Most Rev Nicholas Okoh dedicated the church building while the cutting of the tape and handing over was done by President Goodluck Jonathan.

    Beautiful gesture. But wrong teaching. God does not live in a house. Practice righteousness, help the poor, the widows and the helpless and God would be happy with you

Nigeria Ranks Third On Global Terrorism Index Despite Drop In Deaths – Report

Boko Haram

Nigeria has been ranked as the third most terrorized country in the world according to a 2020 report by the Global Terrorism Index (GTI).

The report which was released on Wednesday, ranked Nigeria third only behind war-torn countries of Afghanistan and Iraq.

According to the GTI report, Nigeria witnessed an increase in Boko Haram attacks in the period under review, witnessing her worst terrorist attack in 2019 in northeastern Borno State, where at least 70 people were killed and 10 others wounded when insurgents attacked at a funeral.

“Over the past year, Boko Haram increased attacks on military targets, with deaths rising from 26 in 2018 to 148 in 2019,” the report said.

However, the report recognized that terror-related incidents in the country fell by 27% in the same period due to a significant reduction in violence attributed to killer herdsmen.

“This reduction occurred despite a small increase in deaths attributed to Boko Haram, which has been the most active terrorist group in the country over the past decade. Deaths from terrorism in Nigeria are now 83 percent lower than at
their peak in 2014.”
