No end in sight to Christians slaughtered by Fulani

Fulani militant (2)Yet another suspected killing spree by Fulani herdsmen in Nigeria has resulted in the deaths of as many as 200 Christians.  

Advocate groups for persecuted Christians are still trying to collect information about the May attacks that targeted several villages around the city of Jos during a three-day span. 

William Stark with International Christian Concern, which has documented the attacks for years, says it's frustrating that the government allows the Fulani militants to commit these acts of violence with impunity. He points out that President Donald Trump called attention to the ongoing attacks when he met with Nigeria's president earlier this year. 

"Since that point there definitely seems to be some more movement at least on the international advocacy scale," Stark advises. "We're really thankful for that but unfortunately what we're seeing now still is the attacks are happening unabated, with either unwillingness or inability for the Nigerian military to confront the issue."

Meanwhile, ICC has learned that Fulani militants attacked Jiri village, a small farming community of approximately 350 people, on June 20. During the attack, they destroyed the farms and homes of local farmers. Reports indicate that the militants broke into several churches and destroyed pews, instruments, and other church property.
