Over 6,000 Nigerian Christians Slaughtered, Mostly Women and Children
According to the Christian Post, Christians are experiencing “pure genocide” in the land with over 6000 women and children massacred by a nomadic group called the Fulani. Mostly residing in mostly in Nigeria, Mali, Guinea, Cameroon, Senegal, and Niger, the Fulani were early adopters of Islam, participating in holy wars, or jihads, in the 16th Century that established them as a dominant social and economic force in Western Africa.
The International Society for Civil Liberties and the Rule of Law, Intersociety, stated on Tuesday that a combined total of 1,750 Christians, along with non-Muslims, have been killed both by the Fulani herdsmen, and by Boko Haram radicals, who are a separate terror group.
Intersociety also warned of a genocide in its statement:
“Nigeria is drifting to [a path of] genocide through killing, maiming, burning and destruction of churches and other sacred places of worship, and forceful seizure and occupation of ancestral, worship, farming and dwelling lands of the indigenous Christians and other indigenous religionists in Northern Nigeria,” it said.
