According to Morning Star News, 10 Christians were killed, three villages attacked and a church burnt down by Fulani Muslims in Nigeria’s Plateau State this month. Violence between predominantly Christian farmers and predominantly Muslim cattle herders, or Fulani, have waged for years, usually over land disputes. Recently, attacks have been perpetrated on the basis of religious identity, resulting in the reported deaths of hundreds of Christians and the destruction of untold amounts of Church and communal property.
09/24/2014 Nigeria (Morning Star News) – Ethnic Fulani gunmen shouting the jihadist chant “Allahu Akbar” attacked three villages in Nigeria’s Plateau state this month, burning down a church building and killing at least 10 Christians, sources said.
Heavily-armed Fulani Muslim extremists on Sept. 14 attacked the Bokkos area, shooting five members of the Church of Christ in Nations (COCIN) in their homes in Mbar and burning down 15 houses and an Assemblies of God church building, said the Rev.
Manasseh Duwong of the COCIN congregation in Mbar.
“They were shouting, ‘Allahu Akbar [God is greater]’ and also saying, ‘We must wipe out these infidel Christians today,’” Duwong told Morning Star News in Mbar.
