Muslims went on a three-day-long rampage of mayhem and murder, slaughtering 12 Christian, burning two churches, and terrorizing hundreds of others as part of an ongoing pogrom against Christians that has been going on for the last month. Even worse, there are reports that members of the military actually helped the terrorists carry out their plans:
Muslim Fulani herdsmen killed at least 12 Christians in southern Kaduna state on Wednesday and Friday (Nov. 23-25) in what Christian leaders call a campaign of ethnic and religious cleansing.
The killings took place in four communities around Gidan Waya town, near Kafanchan in Jema’a Local Government Area (LGA) of Kaduna state, in north-central Nigeria: Pasakori, Mile One, Hayin Gaza and Sakiyo villages.
Area resident Joshua Aku told Morning Star News in Gidan Waya that the attacks began in Pasakori on Wednesday evening (Nov. 23). Herdsmen killed the Pasakori village head, Ayuba Gwafan, in an armed assault that began at about 5 p.m. and lasted an hour, he said.
The heavily armed herdsmen then killed James Adamu of Hayin Gaza village, a Christian identified only as Gayus of Sakiyo village, an unnamed Christian, and three other Christians who were on their way to Kagoro while on the Gidan Waya-Kagoro highway, Aku said.
The herdsmen returned on Friday to attack Mile One village, on the outskirts of Gidan Waya, and started killing villagers and destroying their houses. District head Daniel Akai was killed along with La’azarus Yakubu, Joel Tanko, Fine Gambo and Jolly Dego, the latter from southern Nigeria but resident in Mile One village, Aku said.
Akai was a member of the Evangelical Church Winning All (ECWA) in Gidan Waya.
“The house of Mr. Akai was burned by the herdsmen, as was St. Paul’s Catholic Church, and the offices of the ECWA Gidan Waya District Church Council (DCC) were also destroyed,” Aku said.
The attack on Mile One village started at about 3 p.m. and continued until midnight, he said.
Expect to see more of these things in the future. As Islam rises and secular society rejects Christianity, Christians will need to look out for each other apart from the rest of society.
