As the second wave f the pandemic is hitting the country badly, the Evangelical Church, Winning All (ECWA), yesterday said the COVID-19 pandemic had claimed the lives of over 200 of its mission supporters, calling 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.

He further described the late Kadiya as a rare gem who was committed to God’s work during his lifetime. He urged his children to follow in their father’s footsteps.
