Christian Boy Flees Angry Muslim Mob
(Barnabas Fund) On 3 April, a young Christian, alleged to have desecrated a page from the Qur’an, fled for his life across the town of Makarfi to the police station, where he took refuge from an angry mob of Muslims. The mob issued a demand for his release so that they could attack him, but the police refused. The mob then set fire to the police station and went on to torch nine churches and two houses of pastors. Shops were also looted in their rampage throughout the area.
