Nigerian Terrorists Kill Christian And Injure Three Others
Nigerian Terrorists Kill Christian And Injure Three Others:
According to a local, Fulani herdsmen invaded a community in Nigeria‘s Nasarawa state on Wednesday morning (Sept. 20), murdering one Christian and injuring three others, including a pastor. The attack reportedly took place in the early hours of the morning, catching the community by surprise. The local authorities have launched an investigation into the incident and are working to ensure the safety of the affected community members.
According to Nathaniel Lauji, the herdsmen attacked Kola village in Akwanga County at around 10 a.m., murdering Amos Vonne Wakayi and injuring Rev. Thomas Wakayi, a Baptist pastor, Victor Yakubu, and Sunday Wakayi.
Lauji reported in a text message that “the injured victims are currently being treated at Our Lady of Apostles (OLA) Hospital, Akwanga, a Roman Catholic health facility.” .
The attack forced Christians to flee from Kola and the villages of Angre, Tabu, Nganche, and Bohar, he said. The displaced Christians sought refuge in nearby towns and cities, hoping to find safety and protection from further violence. Many of them left behind their homes, belongings, and livelihoods, facing an uncertain future as they tried to rebuild their lives amidst the turmoil.
Other areas of Nasarawa came under attack earlier this year. On May 19, herdsmen attacked the predominantly Christian community of Takalafiya, Karu County, where a pastor and 43 other Christians were killed. The attack in Takalafiya was not an isolated incident, as Nasarawa has experienced multiple instances of violence this year.
