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.
"God is Just. He will pay back trouble to those who trouble you and give relief to you who are troubled… this will happen when the Lord Jesus is revealed from Heaven in blazing fire with His powerful angels. He will punish those who do not obey the Gospel of our Lord Jesus. They will be punished with everlasting destruction and shut out from the presence of the Lord and from the Majesty of His power on the Day He comes to be glorified in His holy people and to be marvelled at among all those who have believed." 2 Thessalonians 1:6-10
