Oga Success called for prayers for the abducted corps member.

In response to the post, some Nigerians are wondering why he went on evangelism in a place like Maiduguri.

Some others want to know why they still post corps members to places with security issues.

The attacks by the Boko Haram have continued despite the efforts of Nigeria’s security agencies in partnership with those of neighbouring countries to bring it under control.

The insurgents have been largely restricted to three north-eastern states of Adamawa, Borno and Yobe. However, they still carry out attacks on soldiers and civilians in those states.
