He disclosed over 8,000 members of his church had lost their lives and 70% of church facilities in Adamawa, Yobe and Borno States destroyed but he was confident that President Muhammadu Buhari would end the activities of Boko Haram. 

He called on  Nigerians  to pray and support Buhari  at all times.

Speaking with journalists in his office in Jos,  Dali, whose church is headquartered in Mubi, Adamawa State but temporarily relocated to Jos, Plateau State due to insurgency, lamented that most of the church pastors had lost their jobs as their  places of worship had  been burnt and members killed, adding  that 176 of the kidnapped Chibok girls were his members.

“Nigeria will overcome the Boko Haram challenge soon. 70% of our churches have been destroyed in Adamawa, Yobe and Borno states by Boko Haram;  over 8,000 of our members were killed.  176 of the girls kidnapped in Chibok are our members,” he stated.
