Special visitor from Nigeria visits Lancashire church

St Wilfrid’s Church in Ribchester had a very special visitor at their worship last Sunday.

Oloni was staying as a guest with Lord and Lady Alton.

Oloni is a traditional King from Nigeria who works tirelessly for peaceful solutions in a country facing persistent terror at the hands of Boko Haram against its Christian citizens.  

He has been developing economic initiatives for his people based on ethical production of cocoa for chocolate. Oloni is a Christian from the Anglican tradition and wanted to worship at the local Anglican Church as part of his visit.

Rev. Brian McConkey said: “We were honoured to have him with us for the morning and it was a joy to share lunch together and hear more of his story.”
