phones. Our monthly feeding allowance which we contributed to was also
taken away by the evil men.”

A fellowship member who asked that his name not be used in print said:
“We were sleeping when some men came in holding all sort of dangerous
weapons but we never resisted them, we obeyed their orders because we
were in great fear. They asked us our state of origin and religion and
threatened to behead us if we misbehaved. ”

RCCF  president Banji Omogbehin said “the bandits were asking us for
our state of origin, threatening to rape our ladies and behead us.” A
motive for the attack is unknown.
