The Chairman, Christian Association of Nigeria,
CAN, Reverend Titus Pona has said that, his
Secretary, late Rev. Faye Pama Musa was murdered
by the Boko Haram sect in front of his daughter,
who followed them from the living room. He said
they dragged him outside before his daughter and
shot him severally.
According to Rev. Pona, his daughter who called to
inform him of her father's demise, said she had
begged them to spare his life, but they would not
listen, instead, they also tried to shoot her, but the
bullet missed her.
Pona said the killers, according to his family, went
through the wall to the house to drag him out, not
with the intention to kill him before his children, but
the daughter followed them.
He recalled that, last year when they met with the
governor of Borno state, Kashim Shettima, the
governor,out of concern asked whether the area
they live was safe enough for them.
"We told the governor that our area was safe. Of
course, there were no killings around this area
before, and it is very unfortunate that they came to
attack an innocent man." He said
Family members of the deceased have said that the
killers were seven in number and stormed at
exactly 6:30 pm on Tuesday. " They came in a gulf
car and waited around the house. A lot of people
saw them, even those children that were playing
ball saw them, but nobody thought they were here
for a mission to kill anyone."
According to them, there was rumour last week that
the Boko Haram group were planning to kill or
kidnap a pastor, but people took it lightly.
"We never thought that the rumour could turn out to be true, as it was written and dropped within the Polo area. Only God can save us from these blood
Our prayers and hope is that the state of
emergency declared by the President would help to
fish them out and bring them to justice ."
