Islamic radical herdsmen ambushed and hacked to death two Christians in central Nigeria as they left an evangelical church service and were making their way home.
Morning Star News reported on Thursday that Ibrahim Weyi, 45, and Larry More, 53, were attacked by the Muslim Fulani herdsmen Sunday evening as they were going home on a motorcycle following worship at the Evangelical Church Winning All in Kwall village, Plateau state.
The radicals also injured another Christian, 23-year-old Samuel Weyi, who survived and is being treated at a hospital in Jos.
“Fulani herdsmen have continued to kill innocent Christians in our villages, yet the Nigerian government has not taken proactive measures to end the onslaught,” said resident Lawerence Zango.
The Rev. Sunday Zibeh, pastor of the ECWA church in Nzharuvo, Miango, said that 11 Christians have been killed by the Fulani in the Bassa area since February.
And those are just a portion of the hundreds of believers who have been slaughtered across the country since the start of the year, with the Fulani increasing their deadly attacks month by month.
“In these cases, the victims were either ambushed and killed by the herdsmen or attacked in their homes at night,” Zibeh said. “The sad reality is that the Nigerian government headed by President Muhammadu Buhari, himself a Muslim and a Fulani man, has not acted in any way to end these attacks.”
