Christians are being slaughtered en masse in the world right now, but you’d never know it if you watched CNN — also known as the ‘Stormy Daniels Network’ these days.
CNN doesn’t seem to cover actual news anymore, it’s all conjecture, conspiracy, as well as #Resistance. This President can’t do anything right despite evidence to the contrary. The previous administration seemingly couldn’t do anything wrong despite evidence to the contrary. They spied on journalists and civilians, weaponized the IRS, blatantly lied about Benghazi, Fast and Furious, Obamacare, etc., etc., and they still got a free pass.
This is why we in the West have no idea that Christians are being targetted for extinction in Nigeria.
Over the weekend, 50 heavily-armed Muslim Fulani militant herdsmen began a killing spree in Nigeria that lasted from Thursday through Sunday evening and into early Monday. Most of the victims were in their homes sleeping when the attacks began.
Entire villages in rural areas were wiped out.
In only days, a dozen villages in Nigeria’s Plateau state were wiped out. The affected communities surround the city of Jos—known as the epicenter of Christianity in northern Nigeria’s Middle Belt.
As many as 200 Christians had been killed, however, some residents fear the death toll may be even higher, as more bodies are yet to be recovered, while others were burned beyond recognition. On Sunday, 75 of the victims were buried in a mass grave.
Information is still being gathered, but here is what is known so far:
- 120 people who were attending the funerals of an elderly member were hacked to death as they returned home.
- In another attack, in Gana Ropp village, a pastor, Rev. Musa Choji, was killed, as were his wife and son.
- In Gidin Akwati, the whole community was burned down. Local sources say that some of those displaced are still hiding in the bush, as they haven’t yet been able to find their way to a safe haven.
- A pastor with the Evangelical Church Winning All (ECWA) denomination, who wanted to remain anonymous for security reasons, said that following an attack on Saturday, his entire village was reduced to ashes, and more than 100 people lost their lives.
During an attack by the herdsmen at 3:30 am, all of the houses and two churches were burned down in the village of Nghar, in Gashes district. One pastor’s wife’s family was decimated — she lost 14 family members including her mother and her sister. Her brother was the only one in the home that managed to escape, but others visiting the family did not survive. In total, 27 people died in one home — they were all burned to death.
On the day of the attack, only one police officer and two soldiers were in the village, but when the attack was launched, they ran for their lives.
Reportedly, the violence in the attacked areas has been happening for the last two weeks. Over the weekend, the violence reached a peak. Pastor Steve Kwol, chairman of the Pentecostal Federation of Nigeria for Plateau North, which includes the attacked areas, said that herdsmen were ambushing people going to their farms or traveling on their motorbikes.
Since Thursday, the herdsmen had launched “very serious attacks” on the whole communities, he said. Despite the current dusk-to-dawn curfew and the presence of military, the attacks are still ongoing, he says. Two villages—Kwi and Dorowa—were badly damaged on Monday.
In Dorowa, most of the properties were burned down, including four church buildings. The adjoining buildings, such as pastors’ houses, were also destroyed by fire.
In Kwi, a number of buildings, including churches, were also set on fire. The exact number of people killed there is not yet known, but many were displaced and are now living in camps in neighboring villages.
This is nothing new to the region. In March 2010, over 500 people were killed in an attack on the Dogon Na Hauwa village by herdsmen.
So, why haven’t we heard about this in the West?
- Christians are being slaughtered, so… meh.
- It doesn’t fit the narrative for the ‘Religion of Peace’
What would the headline be?
The ‘Religion of Peace’ Strikes Again…
Some claim that the attacks are part of a grand plan to Islamize Nigeria.
“The killings are becoming no longer herder and farmer clashes” but a “deliberate attempt to conquer and occupy the land of the people’s ancestral heritage,” said Dr. Soja Bewarang, who also denounced the attack on a Bible school that trained African missionaries in Gana-Ropp village.
Reverend Gideon Para-Mallam, of the International Fellowship of Evangelical Students in Jos and founder of the Citizens Monitoriing Group working with Christians and Muslims in Nigeria, notes that the violence is part of a pattern, an emerging genda, saying that it is “another Boko Haram in disguise.”
