(Compass) – Devastation caused by religious conflict and hostility toward Christian refugees in the central Nigerian state of Plateau has forced the Church of Christ in Nigeria (COCIN) to relocate its headquarters. “The decision to relocate our regional office and the church in Wase town was made by our church council,” Dr. Pandang Yamsat, COCIN President announced at an April 24 church service in Langtang. First established in 1904, the denomination is one of the dominant Christian churches in northern Nigeria today, with an estimated membership of over two million. According to COCIN officials, six of the church’s pastors were killed in Wase last year and more than 175 churches in the surrounding area were destroyed.
