Thirteen Christians killed, more than a dozen kidnapped by Muslim Fulani herdsmen in Nigeria

From the 23rd to the 25th of April, a number of attacks occurred in Nigeria's Kaduna State, where the conflict between local Christians and Muslim Fulani herdsmen has increased.


According to Morning Star News, the attacks on five villages in the counties of Kajuru and Chikun in Kaduna state displaced more than 1,000 people from their homes. 

Local sources said those killed were members of Evangelical Church Winning All (ECWA), Catholic, Baptist, United Church of Christ in Nations (HEKAN) or Assemblies of God Churches.

Because of the threat, Christians are forced to live under cover, many of them are unable to return to their villages as the herdsmen are still there.

“We want the government to do something urgently, because Christians are being killed or abducted on al almost  daily basis,” a local told Morning Star News.

“Those areas are becoming a no-go area as a result of the deadly activities of herdsmen, and we want the government to do everything possible to stop this frequent loss of lives and destruction of property.”
