5 Christians killed by Fulani militants in Nigeria, on the 26th of May
Nigerian Police report that five Christians were killed and 12 Christian homes were burnt in attacks by gunmen on Sunday, May 26th in Jos, Nigeria.
By the information of ICC, Christians returning home from several church services were attacked by Fulani militia.
Other reports claim that seven people were killed, with 12 wounded and 12 houses burned. Additionally, the head of a northern Nigeria pastors’ fellowship known as the Arewa Christians and Indigenous Pastors Association, Rev. Luke Shehu, said in a press statement that ‘about 30’ Christians were killed and 20 houses burned. With the official totals still unknown, all sources have confirmed that the suspected perpetrators are Fulani militants. Rev. Luke Shehu is recorded as suggesting President Buhari’s recent executive order that revokes all firearm licenses is seen as a ploy to keep Christians and others unarmed in the face of Fulani and terrorists.
The following day on May 27th, Fulani also killed six members of a single family.
