Homes burned, Christians killed in Nigeria comment (0)

March 13, 2014


RIM DISTRICT, Nigeria — Armed gunmen believed to be Muslim Fulani herdsmen attacked a cluster of villages in Nigeria on March 4 and 5, killing 16 Christians and destroying homes, Christian leaders said.

The assailants, reportedly dressed in military camouflage, shot randomly as they struck five villages in the Rim District of Nigeria. Daniel Bitrus Manjang, a pastor with Church of Christ in Nations (COCIN), said the attacks were “very tragic.”

“About 200 houses were burned, and 16 Christians were killed,” he said. Two worship sanctuaries and residences of two COCIN pastors were among the buildings set ablaze, he said.
