The Evangelical Church, Winning All (ECWA), Saturday said the COVID-19 pandemic had claimed the lives of over 200 of its mission supporters. It called on Nigerians to be careful to avoid contracting the virus.
This was revealed by the president of the church, The Rev Dr Stephen Panya Baba, during the funeral service of Mr Yakubu Abiri Kadiya at Kent Academy, Miango, Bassa Local Government Area of Plateau State.
Baba, who was represented at the occasion by the acting assistant secretary-general of the church, The Rev Samuel Atu, described as sad and unfortunate the rate at which staunch mission supporters were dying as a result of the virus.
