A Christian doctor was killed with a machete in Nigeria

A Christian doctor was killed in a machete attack on him and his motorcycle driver on Oct. 17 in Nasarawa state, Nigeria


Police spokesman Rahman Nansel of the Nasarawa State Police Command said in a press statement that Angbas’ commercial motorcycle driver, Mikailu Dahiru, was wounded in the attack on the  Jangargari-Awe Road.
Eyewitnesses informed the Punch news outlet that the assailants attacked them with machetes and that Dahiru was rushed to a nearby hospital for treatment of severe wounds.
It was unclear if the attack was religiously motivated, although the gruesome nature of the attack was similar to that of Nigerian terrorist attacks on Christians. Punch indicated robbery may have been the motive, though neither the media nor the police suggested that any money was stolen.
