Said to be armed by that of radical Islamic sects, including Nigeria's Boko Haram insurgency, Fulani Muslims reportedly continue to oppress and terrorize minority Christians throughout northern Nigeria. To repress the social and economic freedoms of Wase area Christians for refusing to convert to Islam, Fulani Muslims are said to trample Christian farmers' crops, destroying their only sources of income, and systematically disturb Christian activities including times of public prayer and worship, effectively eliminating freedom for Christians' to express their faith and stifling fellowship among local believers. In an outright display of violence, Fulani Muslims murdered Toma Vongjen of Bakin Rijiya as well as destroyed churches in four neighboring villages. As Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan continues to wage war with Boko Haram in Borno, Yobe, and Adamawa States, ongoing vioence perpetrated by Fulani Muslims in and around Wase area continues without redress.
