Over 30 Christians were slaughtered in Northern Nigeria


On the 24th of January, Fulani herdsmen and other terrorists attacked villages in Plateau state, Nigeria, at about 12:30 a.m., killing at least 25 Christians, following the deaths of six others last week.


Thousands of people were displaced in the attacks in Mangu County that began on Monday, local residents reported.

“My village, Kwahaslalek, a Christian community, was attacked at about 12:30 a.m. on Wednesday, the 24th of  January, by terrorists and herdsmen,” Hosea Ibrahim told Christian Daily International-Morning Star News in a text message. “The invaders surrounded the village at about midnight, and they shot at anyone they sighted. Twenty-five Christians, who were mostly women and children, were killed during the attack.”

Sen. Diket Plang of Nigeria’s parliament said in a statement today that the killings resulted from unprovoked attacks on innocent citizens. He called on “the armed forces and all security apparatus to live up to their sworn duty to protect the citizens of Nigeria, and especially the people of Mangu LGA, at this trying moment.”

He urged authorities to investigate the attacks and ensure that the culprits face the full force of the law.
