On July 10, militants from the Islamist group Boko Haram snuck into the home of a 75-year-old Christian and killed him in his sleep. This brother is described as a businessman and an active, faithful member of his local church. His family believes that the militants entered the home around 1:00 a.m. and slit his throat. The attack went unnoticed until his wife discovered what had happened and fled the house screaming, alerting neighbors. Front-line workers request prayer for this family and that Islamist attacks on Christians will cease.
