Thirteen members of a church in the Plateau state of Nigeria were killed by armed Muslim Fulani herdsmen on Wednesday (Jan. 8), an independent news service focused on the persecution of Christians reported yesterday.
Muslim Fulani herdsmen killed a young Christian man after stopping him on a highway in Kaduna state on Oct. 5, while in Plateau state another 13 Christians have been slain in less than a month, sources said.
A recent report from the Council on Foreign Relations says that more than 25,000 Nigerians have been killed in the last four years by Boko Haram, Fulani herdsmen, the Islamic State, and other militant groups.
On Wednesday, June 26, two brave truth-tellers about the anti-Christian persecution threatening to result in full-fledged genocide in Nigeria will participate in a Facebook Live-streamed event from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. ET.
Muslim Fulani herdsmen on Monday (June 17) killed four Christians in north-central Nigeria’s Kaduna state, including three children, on the same day nine other Christians were slain in neighboring Plateau state, area sources said, according to Morning Star News.
Nigerians from predominantly Christian tribes in Nigeria visited the United States this week to share how their tribes are now “homeless” and “sleeping under the skies” after recent massacres at the hands of Fulani radicals and unwanted actions taken by the government.
