A terrorist rampage in central Nigeria left 48 Christians dead in nine days in October, including many women and children.
The attackers were Islamic Fulani herdsmen – responsible for hundreds of murders in recent years.
The herdsmen broke down doors to slaughter families, burn houses and destroy churches in Plateau State in several attacks on villages between 8 and 17 October.
“Every one of us ran to save his life,” said church elder Dauda Samuel Kadiya of the Evangelical Church Winning All (ECWA) in Zanwrua. He told Morning Star News: “All Christians in villages around here have been displaced, and worship buildings have been abandoned.”
