A Christian pastor was shot dead along with his three-year-old son in Nigeria
A Christian missionary and pastor was killed by suspected Fulani radicals on the 21st of May, along with his three-year-old son. The attack took place in Niger state, Nigeria.
“Our missionary brother, Pastor Leviticus Makpa, was shot dead with his son by Fulani bandits,” area resident Deborah Omeiza told Morning Star News in a text message. “His wife escaped with their daughter.”
The pastor served as a church planter and established a Christian school in Niger states Kamberi village.
“He established the only Christian school in the village and raised many souls,” said Samuel Solomon, a close friend of Pastor Makpa. “He came and attended the last Christian conference with us, and we had planned on how to adopt him as our missionary, but painfully he has joined the league of martyrs in Heaven. His blood will testify over the land and also against the insecurity of a corrupt Islamist government in Nigeria.”
