Nigerian army units watched Fulani militants burning Christian homes
The displaced and traumatized Christian community in Jebbu-Miango was again attacked by Fulani militants on Tuesday evening. The community is located 7km from a Nigerian army barracks and is 15km from Jos, the state capital.
“The militants came at night, we ran, we saw the Fulani militants burning our houses that we just rebuilt.” The village community leader told ICC that a unit of the Nigerian army was present during the attack but refused to stop the militants from burning the houses, claiming that they had not been given a command to do so from their superiors.
For the past eight days, Fulani militants have continued to attack the community and destroy their farm crops. Local security forces are not protecting their community and the government is not coming to help them.
