03/07/2018 Washington, D.C. (International Christian Concern) – Following the brutality of January’s massacres in Benue and Adamawa, February may seem less severe for Christians in Nigeria’s Middle Belt. However, there were still more than 30 attacks on Christian villages across Nigeria led by Fulani militants. This includes several attacks on villages and Christians in states that instituted anti-open grazing bills late last year. These bills are beginning to work in the states in which they have been instituted, but may be leading to more attacks in those that have not yet instituted such bills.

In February, International Christian Concern (ICC) documented at least 32 attacks by Fulani militants on Christians, which killed over 95 people and destroyed dozens of villages. These attacks spanned 11 different states and killed nearly 100 Christians. Last year, during this same period, there were only 10 attacks, which killed roughly 45 Christians. With more than twice as many Christians killed this year, there is a clear uptick in attacks. Between January and February 2018, there have already been more than 270 Christians slaughtered by invading Fulani militants.

Below are two of the worst attacks this past month.

  1. February 1: Fulani militants attacked and killed 15 villagers in three areas of Taraba State (Mutum Biyu, Wuro Jam, and Wukari).
  2. February 7: Fulani militants attacked the communities of Agwatashi, Obi, Agyaragu, and Doma in Nassarawa State, killing 20 people.

This continued violence demonstrates either incompetence or complicity by the Nigerian military in these attacks. Villages that have been attacked are often within sight of military outposts or checkpoints. Despite this, the military has almost never successfully intervened and stopped an attack from causing overwhelming devastation. The Nigerian government must reclaim the land that has been stolen by Fulani militants, rebuild the communities that have been destroyed, and protect its citizens from future attack.

  1. We need a Christian year to clear the vermin out of Syria, Nigeria, Libra, Somalia, Sudan, Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Egypt, Western Sahara, Iraq, and Lebanon.

    We need to “LOOK THE OTHER WAY” while opportunistic mercenaries clear the followers of the perfect Pedophile, mohamid, out; like the New World Order GEORGE SOROS FUNDED WHORES DID GOR THE MOSLEM SPRING GENOCIDE OF NON-MOSLEMS IN THOSE LANDS.

    Then we start arresting the traitor Bush, Clinton, Obama, McCain, and Pelosi crime families.

  4. What is needed is for a group of incognito Shotgun Preachers to spend some time over there. I’d sign up to help eradicate the religion of peace

  5. Christians need to sell their plows and buy weapons then hunt down and kill the rat bastard moslem killers and their demon spawn; as well as their “guided missile factories”…. the Burkha wearing filth. Only then will Satan’s horde be quelled.

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
