Boko Haram has destroyed 50 Catholic churches in one Nigerian state, priest reports
Catholic World News - March 19, 2013
The Boko Haram terrorist group has destroyed 50 of the 52 Catholic churches in Nigeria’s Borno state, according to a priest there.
Father Jerome Ituah said that despite the terrorist attacks, “the faithful are not discouraged of their faith.” Catholics continue to worship outdoors, he said, or on the ruins of their churches.
