More than 100 Christians slain in Nigeria comment (0)

March 27, 2014


MANCHOK, Nigeria — Muslim herdsmen armed with guns and machetes launched attacks on three villages in Kaduna state March 14, killing more than 100 Christians and destroying homes, sources said.

Scores of the ethnic Fulani assailants simultaneously attacked the Christian villages of Ugwar Sankwai, Ungwar Gata and Chenshyi in the Kaura Local Government Area for about four hours, sources said. 

Yakubu Gandu Nkut, chairman of the Zankan area chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), said a pastor’s wife and her three children were among the dead.

“The unfortunate attacks on our communities has led to killing of more than 400 Christians,” Nkut said. 

Church buildings also were burned down by the herdsmen in Ugwar Sankwai, Nkut said.

In Manchok, where several Christians have taken refuge, Nuhu Moses of Chenshyi village told reporters the Muslim Fulani herdsmen killed about 50 Christians.
