Missionaries of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, have discovered a primitive community where residents, until recently, were going about their daily activities naked.

Ankoko community belonging to the Kembiri tribe, according to the missionaries, can be found between Niger and Kebbi states in North-West Nigeria.

This was disclosed in a report read by Pastor Ahanaonu Vincent, Co-ordinator, RCCG Kebbi Province Missions at the 64th Annual Convention of the church.

Pastor Vincent revealed that the missionaries had begun the rehabilitation of the committee by building the first ever school complex and a teachers’ lodge to flag off the first phase of the multi-faceted programme.

“Civilization is far from this community as its women and girls still move around barely naked. Their children have neither sighted a school nor the women visited any maternity clinic for child birth or received my medical attention.

“They have never seen electricity let alone good roads to access the location. Wearing of clothes is strange to the inhabitants of the community; only the men are known to wear some form of clothing because they go out to neighbouring communities to sell their farm produce—millet and maize,” the report read.

Speaking on behalf of the newly appointed Special Assistant to the General Overseer on Missions and Chairman, RCCG Central Mission Board, Oyitso, the co-ordinator assured that subject to availability of funds, the second phase of the rehabilitation of the community, which will include the construction of a maternity centre/clinic, market stalls and an agricultural support scheme, will soon commence.
