Thirty-six Christians killed this month in one Nigerian state
According to Morning Star News, militant Fulani herdsmen killed 36 Christians in Kaduna state, Nigeria, throughout multiple attacks in the month of August.
“The attacks from Aug. 4 to Saturday (Aug. 28) on Zangon Kataf, Kaura and Chikun counties took the lives of 17 Christians in Doh (Mado) village, five in Madamai, eight in Buruku and Udawa, three in Machun and three in Goran Gida,” residents told Morning Star news.
Rev. Jacob Kwashi, Anglican bishop of Zonkwa Diocese, addressed the situation while conducting a funeral service for 17 of the slain Christians.
“We have never seen an evil government in this country like the one of today,” he said. “The government is fully in support of the bloodshed in Nigeria. We are being killed just because we are not Muslims.”
“These evil Fulani jihadists are enjoying the backing of the government to go about killing people, destroying their houses and farmlands, yet when we try to defend ourselves, the government will go about arresting our people. What kind of justice is this?”
