Nigeria: Seventeen dead after Fulani attack on Christian Village

Fulani militants have continued their killing spree in north and central Nigeria with a brutal attack on a Baptist village in Kaduna on Tuesday night.

Villagers were asleep when Fulani set upon them with guns and knives. Seven children were among the dead. Six people were injured, including a baby whose skull was penetrated by a bullet that killed her mother.

Tthe attackers met with no resistance, despite the presence of a military checkpoint nearby. Press reports suggested the Fulani killed another six people in nearby villages.

  • Ask God to heal the injured and comfort those who are mourning in Gonan Rogo.

  • Thank God that the life of the three-month-old baby has been miraculously spared.

  • Pray that villagers will emerge from this ordeal with a stronger faith.

  • Pray that they will know that nothing cannot separate them from the love of God and so they are ‘more than conquerors’ (Romans 8:35, 37).

  • Ask God to give state and national authorities wisdom and firm resolve to end a crisis that has dragged on for years now.

  • “Pray for the Persecutors, that they might be saved”. Richard Wurmbrand.
