Muslims in Nigeria entered a Christian home. The grandmother fought with every bit of exertion, but she was overpowered and shot to death. The Islamic terrorists then proceeded to slaughter her three grandchildren, whose ages were 1, 3 and 5. The killers entered another Christian home and slaughtered the whole family. According to the report:
Muslim Fulani herdsmen on Dec. 13 attacked two households and a compound of displaced people in this village near Jos, killing 15 Christians, including two small children.
The attack at about 8:30 p.m. on the two homes and the compound housing Christians displaced by a previous attack in Bachi, like Hwak Kwata-Zawan a predominantly Christian village in Plateau state, killed 3-year-old Happy Matthew and 1-year-old Monday Matthew. A 5-year-old girl, Anna Matthew, was wounded and was receiving treatment at Plateau State Specialist Hospital in Jos.
A grandmother of the three children, 57-year-old widow Rose Monday, died in the attack by several armed Fulani herdsmen, relatives said. The slain family members belonged to the Assemblies of God Church in Hwak Kwata-Zawan.
Rose Monday’s daughter, an aunt to the two slain children and the injured girl, said she learned that her mother tried to protect the children before she was killed.
“My mother struggled with the gunmen until they finally shot her and the three kids,” RoseMonday’s daughter, sobbing, told Morning Star News. “She died trying to save the three children.”
At the other house, members of the family of Gyang Christopher Choji were killed: His son Monday Gyang, 15; his daughter, Gbari Gyang; her husband, Kaneng Nyen Gbari, 46; and their children, Dorcas Timothy and Rose Timothy. Those killed were members of St. Paul’s Catholic Church in Hwak Kwata-Zawan.
The 58-year-old Choji told Morning Star News that family members had retired to their rooms to sleep when they heard gunshots at about 8:30 p.m.
“When the shooting became intense, and we were under siege, I advised my family that we run out to save our lives,” he said. “I was able to escape, but five members of my family were brutally killed by these gunmen.”
