At Least 30 Killed During Overnight Massacre in Nigeria

09/28/2021 Nigeria (International Christian Concern) –According to Sahara Reporters, gunmen suspected to be Fulani Militants attacked Madamai and Abun villages in Kaduna state on Sunday night, killing over 30 people.

“Gunmen suspected to be Fulani herdsmen were said to have invaded the villages and fired gunshots indiscriminately,” a source told the news agency. “No less than 15 houses were burnt by the attackers”.

“The incident comes a few hours after one person was killed, while several others sustained injuries in an attack at Evangelical Church Winning All (ECWA),” continued the report.

“The gunmen were said to have attacked worshippers during the Sunday morning service.”

On December 7th, The U.S. State Department added Nigeria to their list of Countries of Particular Concern for tolerating “systematic, ongoing, egregious violations of religious freedom.” 

Please pray for peace in Nigeria, and for the Lord to comfort those grieving the loss of loved ones due to violence.  Please also pray for the perpetrators of these attacks, that they will be blessed with knowing the truth of the gospel and accept Jesus as their savior.
