Fulani Muslims in Taraba State, Nigeria, took thirty Christians and brutally butchered all of them. As one report says:
The Christian Reformed Church, Nigeria, has raised the alarm over reported killing of no fewer than 30 Christians by Hausa-Fulani Muslims in some parts of Taraba State, despite the ceasefire agreement which was said to have been declared by the Federal Government and members of the Boko Haram Islamic sect.
Among the persons killed during the attack which took place on Sunday were the Pastor of the Sondi Church and his only male child.
Another Pastor, Nuhu Useni, was also killed by the Hausa-Fulani on his way to his farm.
The President of CRC-N, Rev. Caleb Ahima, in a Save Our Soul message to the President of Christian Association of Nigeria, Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor from Takum, Taraba State State and obtained by journalists on Monday in Abuja said time has come for CAN “to let the Federal Government wade in to the bloodshed in Southern Taraba.”
According to him, the number of casualties were high because “security tips seemed not to have been responded to by the security agents as expected.”
He said, “I wish to inform the National President of CAN about the carnage and genocide by islamic insurgents of the Hausa-Fulani insurgents in the Wukari LGA, beginning from February 2014
“Sunday, October 19, 2014, the predominantly Christian Southern part of the State, precisely the Wukari LGA, has been attacked again. The villages of Gindin Waya and Sondi were attacked in the morning of the Day of the Lord on which Christians gather to worship the Lord.
“This is the third time that the Muslims have attacked Christians on Sunday. The attack of today (Sunday) led to the death of four persons in Gindin Waya, and 27 persons in Sondi. Among the dead are the Pastor of the Sondi Church and his only male child. The huge army of insurgents that attacked Sondi had many of the insurgents in army uniform. What is happening in Nigeria?
“Reports reaching the headquarters of the CRC-N Church in Takum, Southern Taraba State, say that another Pastor, Nuhu Useni, was killed by the Hausa-Fulani as he went to see his farm. His dead body will also be brought to Wukari the capital of the LGA tomorrow for burial.”
Ahima said when he contacted the Chairman of CAN in Wukari “he confirmed all that is stated above. Besides, he also informed me that Sunday’s attacks and destruction of human lives and properties seemed to have reached the extent as witnessed today Sunday because security tips seemed not to have been responded to by the security agents as expected.”
The Cleric alleged that Taraba State government seems to have interest in these killings and displacement of people.
He said, “I am appealing to the National President of CAN, Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor, to let the Federal Government wade into the bloodshed in Southern Taraba. The Hausa-Fulani North seems determined to wipe Southern Taraba off the map of this country. What is happening? How come that one LGA has been attacked seven times now and it seems as if the country has no good security intelligence gathering network, or that security reports are not being used?”
