The Chair of the Brigade Executive, Drew Buchanan MBE, has sent this message to the BB family in Nigeria:

“The Boys’ Brigade UK & Republic of Ireland is deeply saddened by this attack which has tragically taken the lives of young people. The BB is a global family: although we live thousands of miles away from you in Nigeria, we stand beside you. We will be asking our members across the UK and Republic of Ireland to hold you all in their prayers at this difficult time. Please convey our deepest sympathies to the families and friends of those who have lost their lives.”

    So so sad. There really are no words but we trust in Our Captain to walk with us. Our thoughts and prayers are with all the families.

    What a terrible tragedy, to loose 3 members of our international fellowship, and the dreadful blow to their parents and family, their Friends, Community and Humankind as a whole.We pray for them in their innocence but more so for human evil despite the presence of a loving God.
