11/30/2020 Nigeria (International Christian Concern) – Seven Christians were killed during two attacks on November 28 and 29 according to a local resident. Samuel Auta told Mornngstar News that Fulani militants attacked and killed the seven people when they invaded Ungwar Bido and Ungwar-Pah. Not only were these seven killed, but it is believed that two childrens were kidnapped and four other people were injured.
These types of attacks have been rampant in Kaduna State throughout 2020. Fulani militants have killed hundreds of people and caused massed displaced from many villages. They have also destroyed many churches in Kaduna and throughout the Middle Belt of Nigeria.
Kaduna State Governor, Nasir el-Rufai, even made statements blaming the Christian victims of these attacks for the violence in the state. He has forced lockdowns in the state in an attempt to end the violence, however, these lockdowns have on several occasions led to further attacks on populations who are unable to move or flee. Despite those attacks, el-Rufai continues to use lockdowns and fails to apprehend any of the perpetrators of the violence.
