Boko Haram terrorists are believed responsible for the murder of a popular Pentecostal pastor in Nigeria. Faye Pama was the Secretary of the Christian Association of Nigeria, North East zone.
Stefanos Foundation Director Mark Lipdo said Pastor Faye was killed in Borno state Tuesday afternoon.
"Gunmen climbed his fence and got into his house and shot him down... You know the sect says they are out for Christians. Being in that position and being so vocal, he must have been a very marked man," Lipdo said.
Faye had several college-aged children and one in secondary school. Lipdo asked that Christians pray for the pastors widow and children, and for Nigerian Christians who are living under intense persecution.
