The death toll for Christians in Nigeria continues to rise to catastrophic proportions as the nation seems helpless or unwilling to stop bloodthirsty Islamic radicals targeting Christians in the region.
This time jihadists – identified as notorious Fulani Herdsmen – toting guns and machetes slaughtered 17 innocent victims in one evening, including four young children and a grandmother.
All of the victims are said to be members of a local Evangelical Christian church.
We’ve told you before how the vicious Fulani Herdsmen reportedly marauded through Christian villages wearing camouflage and brandishing AK-47s, and burned down as many as 160 homes, leaving a trail of at least 39 murdered Christians in their wake.
Nigerian President Muhammed Buhari condemned the massacre of Christians on Twitter, calling them “vile, evil and satanic” and agreeing that the attacks seemed “clearly calculated” against Christians.
