The Northern States Christian and Elders Forum (NOCSEF), an affiliate of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), this afternoon demanded N50 million damage as trauma compensation for each of the abducted female students of Government Girls Secondary Schools, Chibok, Borno State. There are 180 girls on the list released by NOCSEF, which amounts to N9 billion.

NOCSEF also demanded that preparation starts immediately to take each girl to an overseas on university scholarship out of the conviction that the prayer war it has declared and urged all Christians to join would bring the girls back home soon.

A statement issued in Kaduna on behalf of NOCSEF by President/Founder of Old Time Revival Hour, Kaduna and immediate past NOCSEF chairman, said:



“Daughters of Zion taken captive, to be treated as slaves and sold into marriage to unclean people. Abomination has been committed.

​“Raise lamentation to High Heavens. What a shame on the Church of the Living God.

“FACTS: Chibok Local Government is 90% Christians. Majority of the girls abducted are Christian! Why did Boko Haram visit Chibok Local Government? Why didn’t they visit so many other Local Government Girls Secondary Schools in Borno State?

“The Church in Nigeria is hereby called to A Lamentation Prayer. Time: Every Christian home must raise a lamentation to heaven daily. Let God arise and defend his Name, Honour and Majesty.

“Let a 15 minutes cry to heaven be done in every Church every time they gather. Oh God, Rend the Heavens and come down!

“Why should the people say where is our God?”

After listing the names of the 165 abducted Christian girls and 15 their 15 Muslim counterparts (earlier published by News Express), the statement concluded thus:

“The Military may not be able to solve the problem but prayer will. Ordinary Military force may not get them out! Intensive Agonizing Prayer will.


“We make the following demands of the Federal Government whose duty it was to protect the innocent girls.

“1. A N50 million damage as trauma compensation to each girl.

“2. A preparation to take each girl to an overseas University on Government scholarship by September 2014. Preparation for that must start now!

“3. SS1 and SS2 girls in that school must be transferred to schools of their choice from Government coffer. How can any girl feel safe in this kind of school? Living in perpetual fear of attack?
