Morning Star News | Thursday, April 26, 2018

Still shocked over a deadly attack on a Catholic congregation on April 24, Christians in Nigeria’s Benue state yesterday suffered another onslaught by Muslim Fulani herdsmen that reportedly left at least 39 people dead.

More than 160 houses were reported to have been set ablaze in heavily armed attacks.  Dozens of Christians were wounded, and at this writing the total number of those killed was not confirmed.

 A resident told how the herdsmen who invaded her community were dressed in military camouflage and armed with AK-47 weapons.

 Christians in Nigeria held a nationwide protest on Sunday, April 29, against attacks on Christian communities.
