Nigeria: Christian Student Killed At College

Earlier this month, Deborah, a Christian student in Nigeria, was killed by her Muslim classmates for ‘blasphemy’, following a message in a WhatsApp group.

A local source told Open Doors that she commented, “Jesus Christ is the greatest. He helped me pass my exams.” For this message, she was killed.

A group of peers attacked her, stoning her to death before burning her body.

A police spokesperson has revealed that two people have since been arrested for the killing and the college has shut down temporarily.

Will you take a moment to pray?

Pray For Deborah:

  • Praise God for Deborah’s life and courageous faith.
  • Pray for the safety of other Christian students.
  • Pray that Deborah’s attackers will come to know Jesus.
