More Christians Being Killed in Nigeria

“Release International has called on the new Nigerian president to ensure greater protection for vulnerable Christians in the country after seven were killed earlier in the month.

Partners of Release say that armed men in military uniform shot dead seven Christians in Kizachi Dawai Chawai, Kaduna state, on July 3.

The gunmen surrounded the village at about 8.30pm and began shooting indiscriminately. The dead included a primary school teacher and a mother of six. Five others were taken to hospital with gunshot wounds.

The following day, assailants wielding guns and machetes attacked Ganawuri, a village near Jos, in neighboring Plateau state. The Jos area was the scene of brutal violence against Christians in March which left 520 people dead, including many women and children.” – “Call for Protection of Christians in Nigeria After More Killings”, Christian Today

This was some very sad news to read about. I had no idea that Christians were being killed in Nigeria. Hopefully better protection is given to these Christians being persecuted for their faith. This violence is not something that should be taken lightly, and all of those suffering from this hatred in Nigeria should be kept in our daily prayers.
