[Today’s prayer] Another kidnapping incident in Nigeria… 61 villagers kidnapped

Another mass kidnapping incident occurred in northern Nigeria, Africa.

According to Reuters and AFP on the 12th (local time), in the early morning of this day, armed forces kidnapped 61 residents, including 32 women and 29 men, in Buda village, Kajuru district, northern Kaduna state.

This marks the fourth large-scale kidnapping incident in northern Nigeria this month alone.

On the 9th, armed forces broke into a school dormitory in Bakuso Village, Sokotu State and kidnapped 15 children, and on the 7th, at least 287 students from a public school in Kuriga Village, Kaduna State were taken away by armed forces. Last week, more than 200 women and children were kidnapped in Borno state.

The military and police have been deployed to the site to search, but no rescue news has yet been delivered.

The force claiming to be behind the kidnapping did not appear. In northern Nigeria, attacks and kidnappings of civilians for ransom by local armed groups called 'Bandits' are frequent.

Most victims are released after paying the ransom, but there are also cases where they remain held or are killed because they cannot pay the ransom.

Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever hears my word and believes in him who sent me has eternal life and will not be condemned, but has passed from death to life (John 5:24).

Lord, we hear the sad news that another large-scale kidnapping has occurred in Nigeria.

Already, more than 500 people have been kidnapped by armed groups in Nigeria this month alone.

Lord, the savior of Nigeria, please have mercy on the souls of Nigeria who live each day in uncertainty due to continued kidnappings.

Also, please allow those who have been kidnapped to return quickly, and visit and comfort the families of those who are grieving.

May Nigeria move from death to life and end all these works of darkness through faith in God, who loves Nigeria and sent His Son to this land for them.

We want the gospel of the Lord to be testified more quickly in this land.

Please help Nigerian souls who are sitting in the shadow of sin and death because they do not know Jesus receive eternal life through Jesus Christ!
