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.”
Ian at work in an African village, before being kidnapped
Christian missionary Ian Squire was shot dead by one of his kidnappers in Nigeria after performing ‘Amazing grace’ on his guitar.
Ian, a 57-year-old optician from Shepperton in Middlesex, has paid the ultimate price for his devotion to poverty-stricken Africans.
Initially it was thought that he had died because he could not reach his diabetes medicine, but Dr David Donovan said Ian was trying to cheer up his fellow captives before a gang member opened fire.
