Rev. Adamu and his family
On March 17, 2018, Rev. Adamu Ardo was on an evangelistic outreach when a group of young Muslim men broke into the house where he was staying and attacked him and a Muslim friend.
The assailants beat Adamu with clubs and machetes. They also beat his friend because he was associating with a Christian. The friend was not severely injured and rushed Adamu to a hospital. After several months and numerous surgeries, Adamu remarkably survived, but he lost the use of his right hand and developed a speech impediment. His Muslim friend was shocked by how his Islamic brothers had treated his friend and said, “If that’s the way they act, then I don’t want to be a Muslim anymore.” Rev. Adamu has been unable to work since the attack to support his wife and five children.
