JOS, Nigeria, (BNc) — A preaching student is apparently missing after an encounter with Muslim agressors.

In an email to the Central church in Gadsden, Ala., republished today by the church, Solomon Aguh wrote that after morning services they heard a loud noise about two kilometers away from the school. Muslims had attacked a denomination church while in worship. Solomon wrote:

Two students from the School of Biblical Studies went to worship in town and on their way back were taken by Muslim attackers. One student escaped. The other, who was a student from Cameroon, is still missing. We reported it to the police.

We are still hoping the Lord will bring him back safely. Lots of people were killed and houses burnt. Pray for us.

According to the school’s website, the SBS is affiliated with the University of Jos, which authenticates graduates’ certificates.
