Pastor, 10-Year-Old Boy and Two Other Christians Killed in Plateau State, Nigeria

JOS , Nigeria ( Morning Star News ) – Muslim Fulani herdsmen in north-central Nigeria on Tuesday (April 7) killed a pastor and three members of his congregation, including a 10-year-old boy, sources said. In an attack on Ngbra Zongo village, near Miango in Plateau State’s Bassa County, the herdsmen shot and killed Matthew Tagwai, pastor of an Evangelical Church Winning All (ECWA) congregation, in his home after 8 p.m. that night, according to area residents. Pastor Tagwai was 34. He leaves behind two young children and his pregnant wife, area residents said.

The Good News


Salvation is a FREE GIFT from God. You don’t have to do anything but believe by faith that God sent His only Son Jesus Christ to die for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead 3 days later.




  1. God declares all mankind sinners and we all fall short of Glory of God. Romans 3:23
  2. The payment for our sin is death. Romans 6:23
  3. But God…because he loved you so much sent His own Son, Jesus Christ, to die in your place, for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead three days later. 1 Cor 15:1-42cor 5:21

All God asks is that you believe by faith alone in 1, 2, & 3. That you’re a sinner, separated from God but God sent his Son to die for your sins, was buried & rose again 3 days later.

‘that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. ‘

Romans 10:9
