Nigerian Cleric Who Took In 50 Orphans To Be Honoured For Enduring Persecution In Northern Nigeria

1 min read

21 Wilberforce, a Christain organisation, says it
will honour Benjamin Kwashi, an Anglican Bishop
in northern Nigerian, and his wife, for enduring
persecution in Nigeria.
The couple will receive the Frank Wolf
International Religious Freedom Award from
21 Wilberforce during a September 30 event at
Dallas Baptist University.
The organisation said Kwashi received multiple
death threats, his wife endured a savage beating
by Islamist militants, and both their home and
their church were burned.
“Their life story is one of courage, faith and
boundless love,” said Randel Everett, founder and
president of 21Wilberforce.
In spite of the suffering the Kwashis endured
personally, the couple took in 50 orphans who
lost their parents due to violence.
He is the bishop of the Anglican Diocese of Jos,
Nigeria, and General Secretary of GAFCON, the
Global Anglican Future Conference.
