Muslims in Nigeria entered a church in the area of Gwoza and butchered twenty one Christians.
The next day (May 26th), the Muslims rose up against and burned down six churches and murdered another eight Christians. A local named Ibrahim described the horrific event:
In the Monday [May 26] attack, six churches were burned, eight Christians were killed and several others seriously injured… We cannot count the number of houses that were burned in the villages of Chinene, Chikide, Joghode, Kaghum and in Amuda village, where one Christian was killed and several others injured. …Distress calls from them have been sent to the state government, and they were all crying and calling for help… No soldiers or policemen have gone there yet.
An activist of the Church of the Brethren in Nigeria (or EYN) said:
We have continued to receive disturbing reports about continued attacks and killings of Christians in Gwoza area… All EYN churches in the area have been destroyed, and we have been forced to relocate the few surviving pastors there to other parts of the country. In a sense, our ministry in that area has completely been destroyed.
Elizabeth Salami, editor of Light Bearer newspaper, wrote this disturbing report:
Our correspondent in Borno state has informed us about the attacks on Christians in Gwoza and other villages around there… We are awaiting further details from there, but from what we have so far gleaned from news there, it is indeed very disturbing.
The Muslims kidnapped a pastor named Bitrus Yahi in mid-April and his whereabouts are still unknown. Another worker of EYN stated:
We do not know his whereabouts, or whether he has been killed or is still alive, as the church has not been contacted nor contact made by the insurgents with his family
The militias are only going to get more ferocious against these devils as long as they continue this violence. You too can fight against the threat of Islam by saving persecuted Christians.
