Dozens of Christians were killed and a pastor was recently abducted in Muslim Fulani herdsmen’s ongoing attacks upon Christians in Nigeria.
Morning Star News reported a Christian security guard was slain Sept. 11 as Fulani kidnapped the pastor from the Church of Christ in Nations property in Ganawuri in Plateau State. The pastor’s wife was injured.
Ransom demanded, lives lost
The next day the assailants demanded 20 million naira (US $46,650) in ransom from the family.
In Benue State on Sept. 18 Fulani and their terrorist accomplices murdered three Christians. The extremists had killed more than 20 others in the same area during the previous three weeks.
On Sept. 21 and 23 they continued their attacks in Benue State, slaying dozens of Christians, Morning Star reported. Seven villages were attacked.
Christian leaders believe the Fulani seek to take over Christians’ land and impose Islam.
