Ezekiel killed in church protest by civilian JTF in Maiduguri three days to his birthday

The young man who was killed by the Civilian JTF attached to Borno Geographical Information Services (BOGIS) that demolished the EYN church in Maiduguri would have been celebrating his birthday in three day.

The 28 year Ezekiel Bitrus was born in 8th August, 1993 and he was murdered in 5th August, 2021 by the Borno State government, three days to his birthday.

BOGIS attacked and demolished the church despite the facts that the church has it Certificate of Occupancy in a raid that people have linked to the Borno State government’s secret policy not to allow churches to be built in the state and reduce the number of churches through demolition.

NEWISSUES earlier reported the persecution of Christians in Borno State with the state’s radio and television ban on showing anything related to Christianity when Islamic programmes dominated the state television, especially during Ramadan. Christian indigenes of Borno State are more than 35% yet the state government have operated over the years as if they never existed.

Recently the Shehu of Borno spokesman issued a statement over Zumunta Mata video in which they are dressed up in Kanuri attire singing Muslim songs saying it was an outrage and deeply insulting to Muslims, claiming it was a plot to proselytize and convert Muslims to Christianity which the Shehu found very offensive.
