Muslim Fulani herdsman in the Sanga area of Nigeria massacred 200 Christians is just four days. Why this story has been exposed throughout the world, is beyond me. People are too focused on “no justice no peace” nonsense. As we read from a recent report:
In Kaduna state, gunmen in the week hours of Aug. 8 attacked a Christian community in Gimi Dogara village, killing four Christians and setting fire to 15 houses, sources said.
A 47-year-old member of the Evangelical Reformed Church of Christ in the village who escaped the attack in the Sanga Local Government Area told Morning Star News that Muslim Fulani herdsmen came shooting and burning down homes. His name is withheld for security reasons.
Emmanuel Adamu, chairman of Sanga Local Government Council, confirmed the attack.
“Yes, it is true that there was an invasion of one our villages here in Sanga Local Government Area by Muslim gunmen who are Fulani herdsmen,” Adamu said. “The attack on Gimi Dogara village began at about 11 p.m. and lasted to about 4 a.m.,” he said.
The attack brings the casualty figure of murdered Christians in the area to more than 600 this year, with more than 2,000 Christians displaced in the southern part of the state, according to Christian leaders. Affected Christian communities include Fadan Karshi, Akuku, Ungwar Sankwai, Ungwar Gata, Ungwar Kura, Manchok, Takad and Bondong, they said.
The communities are located in Kaura and Sanga Local Government Areas in the southern part of Kaduna state. In unprovoked attacks in the Sanga LGA, Muslim Fulani gunmen killed 200 Christians over four days, and no fewer than 150,000 of these Christian villagers were displaced. In Bondong, one of the affected Christian communities, 142 Christians alone were killed by armed Muslim Fulani herdsmen, they said.
In another recent report we read:
A total of 18 Christians have been killed in recent gun attacks on communities in Plateau and Kaduna states.
Twelve people died when suspected Fulani herdsmen raided Yelwa village in southern Plateau state on August 11. More than 150 heavily armed gunmen launched the attack, killing villagers and burning houses. Local Christians said the attack was religiously motivated.
On the same morning, in the Christian village of Zarazong, in the Jos East local government area of Plateau, gunmen shot dead two people and burned down local houses. Meanwhile, three days previously, on August 8, gunmen launched a five-hour attack on Gimi Dogara village, Kaduna state, killing four Christians and setting fire to 15 houses.
The Rev Soja Bewarang, chairman of the Plateau chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria, confirmed that all those who died in Plateau were members of the Church of Christ in Nations (COCIN).
Christian leaders in Kaduna say the latest attack on Gimi Dogara brings the death toll for Christians murdered in the south of the state this year to more than 600. They describe the attacks as ‘well coordinated and systematic’.
