Another 10 Christians were killed by jihadists in Nigeria last weekend, bringing the total number of Christians killed in the country to 140 since February 10.
Reports indicate that another 10 Christians were murdered in Nigeria on Saturday, March 16, as religious violence in the country continues to reach fever pitch. This brings the total number of Christians murdered to 140, with an additional 160 homes destroyed in the violence.
Muslim Fulani herdsmen killed 10 Christians in southern Kaduna state, Nigeria on Saturday (March 16), bringing the lives lost in the past five weeks to 140 with 160 houses destroyed, sources said.
“We were all asleep in our various homes when at about 4 a.m. [Saturday], we heard gunshots everywhere in my village,” Amos Samuel, 40, of Nandu Gbok village in Sanga County told Morning Star News. “Everyone ran out of their homes to escape from the Fulani herdsmen. Three hours after the herdsmen left, those of us who survived the attack returned to the village to find that our houses were destroyed and 10 of our villagers killed.”
About 30 houses were burned in the attack, Sanga chairman Charles Danladi told Morning Star News, who also said 10 people were killed.
While the global media continues its hyper focus on the eco-fascist terrorist who orchestrated a mass shooting at a New Zealand mosque, it has turned a blind eye to anti-Christian religious violence around the globe.
Big League Politics previously reported on this massive wave of violence over the weekend, with our article published as this latest wave of violence occurred.
The Christians in response to the Muslim terror attack in Nigeria called for prayer from fellow followers of Jesus throughout the world to help them cope with the tragedy.
“Please pray for peace in Kaduna state — hundreds have been displaced and hundreds killed by the Fulani jihadists. We evacuated about a hundred EMS kids from Kufana for safety. Many of our missionaries working among the Kadara tribe and some in Katari areas have been displaced. Please keep praying for our nation,” said Rev. Bakari Ibrahim, director of the ECWA’s Evangelical Missionary Society (EMS).
A survivor of the terror attack noted that these types of violent attacks are a regular occurrence, as the Christian minority is constantly being besieged by barbarians looking to impose their backward religion through acts of terror.
Last week, when a deranged lunatic gunned down dozens of Muslims at two mosques in New Zealand it suddenly became the biggest news story in the world, and rightly so. It was a major news event, and it needed to be reported. But shouldn’t mass killings of Christians be given the same sort of media coverage? Sadly, we all know that doesn’t happen. Whenever there is a mass killing of Christians, it is usually entirely ignored by the mainstream media in the United States, and it doesn’t take a genius to figure out why this is happening. Those that control the mainstream media consider Christians to be one of the main obstacles to “progress” in this country, and so any story that would put Christians in a positive or sympathetic light simply does not fit any of the narratives that they are pushing.
