Christian persecution in Nigeria continues as yet more attacks have taken place by suspected radical Fulani militants.

A church building, a pastor’s home and dozens of other buildings were destroyed after attacks carried out on 26th and 27th of January.

According to former speaker of the Plateau state House Assembly Titus Ayuba Alams, Fulani militants were behind the attacks, claiming that 32 people were killed.

But according to the Plateau State Police the number of people killed in the attacks was 26.

A police spokesperson said that 190 houses were set on fire in the attacks, and 11 people have been arrested.

Last Sunday around 5 million people marched in Nigeria to protest against the beheading of Christian pastor Lawan Andimi.

In January alone, over 100 people died due to terrorist attacks and clashes between Christian farmers and herdsmen reports Evangelical Focus.

In 2019, reportedly over 1000 Christians were killed in Nigeria.

In December last year, a Christian bride and her bridal party were murdered just days before her wedding. The woman was reportedly beheaded by Boko Haram Jihadists.

According to Open Doors USA, Nigeria is ranked as the 12th worst country in the world when it comes to Christian persecution.

Open Doors USA is an organization tracking Christian persecution across the globe. They were founded by “Brother Andrew” notorious for smuggling bibles through the iron curtain into the USSR.

“Christians in the northern region and in the Middle Belt suffer from violence perpetrated by Islamic extremist groups such as militant Fulani herdsmen and Boko Haram.”

Open Doors USA writes on their website.
