Bishop Condemns Murders

Nigeria’s flag

Morning Star News reports:

Muslim Fulani herdsmen attacked a predominantly Christian village in north-central Nigeria on Aug. 13, killing seven Christians, sources said.

Two weeks after herdsmen attacked a nearby area in Kaduna state, the assailants attacked Golkofa village in the same state’s Jema Local Government Area on Saturday night, they said.

“The Christians were killed in their homes,” Golkofa resident Sunday Saleh told Morning Star News. “Some of the victims were shot while others were cut with machetes.”

… The Rt. Rev. Timothy Yahaya, Anglican bishop of Kaduna, told Morning Star News that Christians have been attacked incessantly in the state.

“The attacks by the herdsmen on Christian communities are not only condemnable but must be stopped by the Nigerian government,” he said. “We are tired of these bloody attacks on Christians, not only in Kaduna state, but also in other parts of the country.”
