ICC Note:

Boko Haram, a radical Islamic insurgency that has now declared several towns in northern Nigeria part of the Islamic caliphate, beheaded a 6-year-old boy for professing the Christian faith, according to Sawaltha Wandala. After witnessing the brutal decapitation, Wandala was viciously beaten by the militants. For years, Boko Haram has targeted Christian minorities in the majority-Muslim north. Recent reports indicate that several Christian men have been beheaded following the declaration of the caliphate on August 24. To help Christians in Nigeria displaced by the violence, donate to ICC’s Hand of Hope—Africa Fund here, please be sure to note your donation by writing “HH-Africa” in the comment box.

According to the Voice of the Martyrs (VOM), the horrible incident occurred in a mostly Christian communities in (Attagara, Gwoza district, Borno State) Nigeria on June 1, where a resident named Sawaltha Wandala witnessed several children being killed by the Islamic terrorist group when he was going to a church’s second service that day.

As a result, when Wandala tried to rescue the six-year-old boy in order to take him to a hospital in Cameron (after seeing the child get brutally hacked and thrown into a ditch) by the group, five confrontational soldiers snatched the young child out of his hands and decapitated the child in front of the 55-year-old African man’s eyes.

In addition, Wandala was then savagely beaten by the militants with tree branches before being struck in the head with a rock.
