Two Christians burned alive by Fulani fanatics in Nigerian Kaduna State
Two Christians were burned alive last Friday in the Nigerian village of Manyi-Mashin, in the Kaduna region. From January to May, Fulani herdsmen killed at least 470 Christians in the region.
The two Christians did not manage to escape the attack of the Fulani militia. They were burned alive in their homes: Cecylia Ishaya, 62, mother of six sons, and 56-year-old Iliya Sunday, who had eight children.
Islamic militants burned down all residential buildings, robbing them of anything that could be of value, according to Sahara Reporters.
According to a report published by the International Society for Civil Liberties and the Rule of Law, jihadists have killed 620 Christians since the beginning of 2020, including 470 by Fulanis themselves. In addition, hundreds of Christians are in the hands of Islamist terrorist groups such as Boko Haram, Leah Sharibu and Grace Taku.
