(VineofLife) The Christian Elders Forum of Northern States, CEFNS, yesterday called on the Federal Government to rebuild the over 400 churches destroyed by Boko Haram insurgency in the region.

This is even as the Defence Headquarters, DHQ, yesterday sent a high powered team of senior officers to Baga, Borno State, to assess the recent military operation in the town.

Also, six policemen and five members of the Boko Haram Islamic sect were killed in fresh clashes in Borno and Yobe states yesterday.

The NESCEF leaders, who met at their annual conference in Abuja, also called on President Goodluck Jonathan not to grant state pardon or amnesty to the Boko Haram sect.
