Unknown gunmen have attacked the regional headquarters of Mountain of
Fire and Miracles ministries in Enugu.
The attack was carried out on Saturday night, and the two security men on duty at the church escaped death with serious injuries.
Members of the MFM disclosed to The PUNCH that the gunmen wielded machetes and other dangerous weapons.
Observation from our correspondent showed that they pulled down the entire concrete fence of the church and
burnt part of the altar.
It was gathered that the attack on the church lasted for several hours, from midnight on Saturday to the wee hours
The church recently relocated to the new headquarters at Emeka Ibila Street, off Agbani road, Enugu. This was in October 2013, after the Enugu State Government demolished the old regional headquarters at Zik Avenue.
Regional Overseer, MFM South-East 1, Pastor Rotimi Olugbule, said he got a call early Sunday morning that armed men broke into the church overnight.
“They were armed with guns and other dangerous weapons. They were also armed with 25 litres jerry can of fuel. And they met with our security men and others who were there.
“They demanded for their phones and switched them off. They broke a chair on the head of one of them and he was bleeding profusely. They also used the iron rods they came with to hit him severally on the neck,” said Pastor Olugbule
