(Worthy News) - The slaughter of Christians in Nigeria by Muslim Fulani terrorists is continuing: seven Christians were murdered in Kaduna state on Saturday night and Sunday morning (Nov. 28-29), Morning Star News reports. These are just the latest killings of Christians among the many already committed this month.

During these two recent attacks in Ungwar Bido and Ungwar-Pah, near Jagindi in Jema’a County, the terrorists also kidnapped two children, burned down four houses and wounded four people. Local resident Samuel Auta was able to give Morning Star News the names of six of those killed: Silas Maman, Malaki Tabat, Geofree Andrew, Anna Ahmadu, Sunday Tagwai, and Fidelis Musa, all of Ungwar Bido village.

In a press statement, Samuel Aruwan, Kaduna state commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, identified the two abducted children as Rebecca Andrew and Clement Andrew and the four wounded as Adamu Mangai, Matta Silas, Yaro Musa, and Yaro Andrew.

There are many millions of Muslim Fulani from hundreds of different tribes living across Nigeria, Morning Star News reports. Most of these do not hold Islamic extremist views. However, those that do can be extremely dangerous. In a recent report about the terrorists, the United Kingdom’s All-Party Parliamentary Group for International Freedom or Belief (APPG) noted: “They adopt a comparable strategy to Boko Haram and ISWAP [Islamic State West Africa Province] and demonstrate a clear intent to target Christians and potent symbols of Christian identity.” Moreover, the APPG report also noted as early as 2015 that Fulani President of Nigeria Muhammadu Buhari “has done virtually nothing to address the behavior of his fellow tribesmen in the Middle Belt and in the south of the country.”

Christian Solidarity International (CSI) issued a genocide warning for Nigeria on January 30, 2020. CSI has called on the United Nations Security Council to take action against “a rising tide of violence directed against Nigerian Christians and others classified as ‘infidels’ by Islamist militants in the country’s north and middle belt regions.’”
