Isaac Amata

A Nigerian who worked with MRA for many years

This page exists in:

Isaac Amata  worked with MRA as a full-time volunteer, mostly in his home country of Nigeria but also extensively in Europe. For many years he hosted the MRA centre at 4 Lawrence Road, on Ikoye Island, Lagos - which at the time was Nigeria’s capital city. Later in life he married Joy and they continued to welcome many visitors there. 

Isaac was one of four brothers from Bendel State (now Delta State)  in central Nigeria. His oldest brother, Ifoghale (John), was also active with MRA. 

Isaac travelled widely within Nigeria building friendships with people in the former secessionist area of Biafra and also the predominantly Muslim northern states. He was particularly close to the Emir of Kano, Ado Bayero, the traditional ruler  of nine million Muslims. 

Isaac and his team provided training to the student police detectives who had been hand-picked from all parts of Nigeria to attend the nearby Police college. His brief was to teach them the moral and spiritual values which he felt Nigeria would need for a stable future.
