Muslims in Uganda attacked a Christian man for leaving Islam, put a gun on his forehead, pulled the trigger and murdered him. They later went on to tell his wife, who also left Islam:
If you continue following the enemies of Islam, then you are risking your life. Soon your children will be orphans.
According to the report:
The widow of a Christian shot to death by suspected hard-line Muslims in eastern Uganda fears for her life after receiving several death threats, she said.
Agnes Nasubuga Nura, 28, said Muslim extremists killed her husband, Richard Lebon Suleiman, on Feb. 15 in Budaka, Pallisa District, 193 kilometers (119 miles) east of Kampala. Among the threatening text messages she has recently received, she said, one read, “If you continue following the enemies of Islam, then you are risking your life. Soon your children will be orphans.”
On the evening he was killed, Suleiman was stopped by men near a food shop where he had bought items at about 7:30 p.m. on his way back home to Kabuna village. A nearby resident said he heard the attackers saying, “Today we have found him. He deserves to die.”
“I sometimes miss sleep, as my husband was brutally murdered,” Nura told Morning Star News. “The attackers shot him in the forehead. At times my memory flashes back, and I find myself weeping.”
With sobs interrupting her narrative, Nura said she and her five children, who range in age from 1 to 9, have been devastated by the loss of her husband. They live in a small house of thatched grass. She is struggling to meet basic needs, lacks enough income to send her children to school, and they need trauma counseling, she said.
The family left Islam two years ago, when they lived in Jami village, near Mbale.
“Since the time we joined Christianity, Muslims continued issuing threatening messages to us, insisting that we should return back to Islam, and if not, then they were going to kill us,” she said. “So we decided to move to Budaka town and rented a house there.”
