83-year old Nigerian Imam Abubakar Abdullahi wins International Religious Freedom Award for saving Christians

Imam Abubakar Abdullahi
An 83-year-old Nigerian Imam Abubakar Abdullahi will be among four other nationals (from Sudan, Brazil, Iraq and Cyprus) to receive the first-ever International Religious Freedom Award of the United States Government at an Awards ceremony slated for the 17th of July, 2019

He is the Imam of Nghar village who hid 262 Berom Christians in his mosque and in his house in June last year when herdsmen launched a bloody attack on 10 villages in Barkin Ladi, Plateau State.

Here is his citation as published on the US Department of State website:

Imam Abubakar Abdullahi selflessly risked his own life to save members of another religious community, who would have likely been killed without his intervention. On June 23, 2018, ethnic Fulani herdsmen, who are predominantly Muslim, launched coordinated attacks on 10 villages in Barkin Ladi, killing hundreds of ethnic Berom farmers, who are predominantly Christian.

CAN dissociates itself from "members" solidarity visit to COZA

Rev Dr Samson Jonah and Israel Akanji at COZA last Sunday
The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has dissociated itself from some members who paid a solidarity visit to Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo and the COZA church.
According to the National Director of Legal and Public Affairs, CAN, Evangelist Barrister Kwamkur Samuel Vondip in an official statement, he said that "CAN or the President of CAN did not approve and knows nothing about such a solidarity visit."

He said they did it on their own and that CAN stands by its earlier release on this issue that while they would never support any act of immorality from whatever quarter, they would not jump into passing judgement without thorough investigation of the matter.

Apparently last Sunday, Rev Dr Samson Jonah, CAN Chairman in the FCT, and Israel Akanji, who is the leader of CAN, North central, visited COZA church in Abuja and addressed the congregation during the service.

I have solicited their guidance on actions, I should take that are honouring to our Lord Jesus Christ and the work, he has called me to do."

Pastor Poju Oyemade of Covenant Christian Centre offers his own position on rape allegation against Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo of COZA

Pastor Poju Oyemade
The senior pastor of Covenant Christian Centre, Pastor Poju Oyemade, has offered his own position on the ongoing rape allegation against Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo of COZA.

Here is his position as published on his Facebook page.

I have been asked by many well meaning people about my position concerning the accusation of rape made against Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo.

I could only watch the tape by Busola Dakolo for a few minutes, it was difficult to sit through it. From what I heard it is impossible not to be heart broken and sympathise with her. She must have gone through a lot and then to sit to tape her experience must have been very painful.

She is today a wife and mother of three to have to relive a 20yr old experience.

I immediately contacted the spiritual leader in the Body of Christ I believe Pastor Biodun deferrs in authority to, to wade into the issue and bring about a decision.
