Terrible: Armed men attack MFM church in Enugu, burn altar

by ‘Jola Sotubo


The Enugu branch of the Mountain of Fire and Miracles ministries (MFM) was attacked by unidentified gunmen during the weekend.

Two security men on duty at the regional headquarters of the church were said to have barely escaped with their lives.

The hoodlums reportedly asked the guards to turn off their phones and then they proceeded to vandalize the church.

Nigerian Eye reports:

Observation from our correspondent showed that they pulled down the entire concrete fence of the church and burnt part of the altar.

It was gathered that the attack on the church lasted for several hours, from midnight on Saturday to the wee hours
of Sunday.

The church recently relocated to the new headquarters at Emeka Ibila Street, off Agbani road, Enugu. This was in October 2013, after the Enugu State Government demolished the old regional headquarters at Zik Avenue.

Regional Overseer, MFM South-East 1, Pastor Rotimi Olugbule, said he got a call early Sunday morning that armed men broke into the church overnight.

“They were armed with guns and other dangerous weapons. They were also armed with 25 litres jerry can of fuel. And they met with our security men and others who were there.

“They demanded for their phones and switched them off. They broke a chair on the head of one of them and he was bleeding profusely. They also used the iron rods they came with to hit him severally on the neck,” said Pastor Olugbule.
