“Continue to pray for us.”
Earlier this week, Christians traveling home following church services near the city of Jos, Nigeria were ambushed by terrorists who murdered at least thirty congregants.
The Sun of Nigeria reports that the violence erupted in communities of Dutse Uku, Angwan Rukuba, and Rikkos, in the Nigerian state of Plateau.
“We have received reports of tension around Dutse Uku, Rikkos, Cele Bridge and we have mobilized our personnel to the area,” Police Public Relation Officer DSP Mathias Terna Tyopev told The Sun. “As we speak, the Area Commander, Jos Metropolis is there on the ground. We are still on the trouble spots to bring the situation under control, I can’t guarantee you that I will issue a statement today but until I return from the area.”
Locals have accused radical Islamic Fulani herdsmen of attacking the Christian communities in their ongoing plan to create a “Fulanisation and Islamization” in the African nation.
