Persecution

Many Christians in Mubi, Adamawa state, are still recovering from injuries
sustained in an Oct. 29, 2014, attack by Boko Haram. Insurgents overpowered
security officers at a military barracks before searching houses throughout the
village, identifying and killing Christians. Boko Haram also released nearly 100
prisoners, who then helped the militants capture hundreds of Christians they
planned to kill. Most of the believers managed to escape during an attack on
the insurgents by the military. However, many Christians were injured by
gunfire and bomb fragments during their escape.
