Over 850 Churches have so far been destroyed through the activities of the Boko-Haram Insurgents in the Northern part of the country, the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) has alleged.
Making this revelation in Ibadan yesterday was the President of the Fellowship, Felix Omobude during his interaction with journalists after his visit to the Oyo State chapter of the Fellowship at the Conference Room of Rehoboth Cathedral, Oluyole Estate.
He decried the current onslaught by the Islamic Fundamentalists and asked the Federal Government to brace up in its activities to curb them and let peace truly reign in the country.
The religious leader, who lamented that the North-East and some other areas of the Northern part of the country had been set back for several years aligned with the approach of the government in its desire to dialogue with the sect should they show readiness.
He said: “By my understanding of the government position, it is not that the government is going to beg the insurgents, the war against them will continue, if they say they want to talk, no government will turn deaf ears to them.
“We are appealing to our people as well as our leaders to come together and treat the insurgents as criminals which they are truly, because nobody can justify the dastardly act of bombing places of worship.
