Three children were among Christians killed recently in two Nigerian states by Muslim Fulani herdsmen.

Morning Star News reports that on 17 June in Kaduna state, over 200 armed herdsmen attacked two Christian villages. They killed an eight-year-old, a nine-year-old and a teenage boy, who is thought to be 15 or 17.

On the same night in another village one man was killed, a woman kidnapped, 93 houses were burned, farms destroyed and the villagers displaced.

Meanwhile in Plateau state on the same night, Fulani herdsmen killed nine Christians and burned down two church buildings and 185 houses. Later, less than two miles away, the herdsmen shot six Christians to death and burned more houses.

Almost every month brings reports of attacks on Christians in the country.
