An entire Christian family have been burned to death in North-Central Nigeria, barely three weeks after a Christmas-eve terrorist Fulani Jihadist attack claimed over 200 lives.
Over 30 deaths have so far been recorded in the renewed attacks which took place in Mangu Local Government and around Sabon Kasuwa, as a local ministry —Christ of Church in Nations (COCIN) — was burned by armed Jihadists who spread their attacks into neighboring Christian homes, leaving many dead, wounded and homeless.
Christian killings have become prevalent in the north-central part of Nigeria, even as gun-wielding pro-Jihad Fulani nomads continue to destroy local communities and displace farmers to seize control of their land and property. Africa’s most populous nation ranked 6th worst nation for Christians in 2023. This increasing threat to religious freedom is driven solely by terrorist massacres and Islamic extremists operating in its northern region.
Plateau state governor, Caleb Muftwang, has imposed curfew to quell further escalation of violence, even as the nation’s president remains silent and clueless in the face of the killings.
The United Nations (UN) mist act fast to hold accountable Mr Tinubu over worrying inaction against emboldened terrorists. Nigerian Christian lives matter.
