NIGERIA: MUSLIM EXTREMISTS BURN CHURCH BUILDING

Saying it was too close to a mosque, Islamists destroy sanctuary in Kwara state.

ILORIN, Nigeria, September 2 (Compass Direct News) – Muslim extremists on Sunday (Aug. 31) set ablaze a Christ Apostolic Church building in the Baboko area of this city in central Nigeria’s Kwara state. The Rev. Samuel Ogowole told Compass that area Muslims had complained that the church building was located near a mosque. Compass found that the church building was 500 meters from the Baboko mosque, but to appease the Muslim community the Kwara state government had offered church leaders 3 million naira (US$25,580) and ordered the congregation to relocate. Church leaders rejected the order, saying they had spent nearly seven times that much to construct the church building.
