Suspected Islamic militants have killed a Christian leader in north-eastern Nigeria shortly after the president declared a state of emergency in the region to tackle “insurgents and terrorists” threatening Africa’s most populous nation. The Secretary of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) in Borno State, Faye Pama Musa, a Pentecostal pastor, was shot dead in his Maiduguri home by two suspected members of the Islamic ‘Boko Haram’ group, officials confirmed Wednesday, May 15. “The Borno CAN secretary has been killed. We’ve got the report and the national president received it with heavy heart. It is very sad,” said Kenny Asaka, a CAN spokesman. A police source reportedly said that the deceased official of the Christian umbrella group “attempted to run away but his assailants were closed on him” shooting him “at close range” late Tuesday, May 14. The 47-year-old pastor was killed shortly after Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan declared a state of emergency in Borno, Yobe and Adamawa States to address the “systematic effort by insurgents and terrorists to destabilize the Nigerian state and test our collective resolve.” More
