Another Church Attacked
The Deeper Life Bible Church in Otite was attacked by AK-47 wielding Islamicists at an evening service on Monday, 6 August. At least 19 people were killed, including a pastor in this attack. Otite is near Okene in Kogi State, much further South than previous Boko Haram terrorist attacks.
Boko Haram Terrorism
In February, Boko Haram had attacked a jail in Kogi State to free inmates. In April, the Nigerian Security Forces raided a bomb-making factory in Okene, killing at least 9 Boko Haram terrorists. Reportedly 10 terrorists carried out the attack on The Deeper Life Bible Church this last Monday.
