Muslim Fulani herdsmen attacked a cluster of Christian villages in Kaduna state in northern Nigeria last week, killing at least 13 Christians and scattering members of three churches, area sources said.
A survivor of the attacks told Morning Star News that the herdsmen killed two Christian women in Ninte village on Aug. 1, and that she knew of eight Christians killed in Gada Biyu on Aug. 2. Local newspapers reported nine people were killed in Gada Biyu, with another two men killed in Akwa’a on Aug. 3.
News of the massacre comes on the same day a new report was released by Media Research Center showing the U.S. media have covered up the genocide of Christians in the Middle East.
One of hundreds of Christians displaced from the area, Martha Yohanna of Alheri Baptist Church in Gada Biyu village, told Morning Star News that the attacks on Ninte and Gada Biyu villages were carried out by Muslim Fulani herdsmen. The Muslim herdsmen have become heavily armed in recent years.
“On Aug. 1 at about noon in Ninte, the Fulani herdsmen attacked two Christian women and a man while they were on their farm,” she said. “They cut them with machetes. A woman and her daughter in-law were killed by the Fulani herdsmen while the man is still in the hospital as I talk with you.”
The next day, the Fulani herdsmen killed eight Christians in Gada Biyu, including five identified only as Friday, Akoro, Mamman, Danladi, and Jerry, she said.
Her brother-in-law, 25-year-old Joseph, is missing and is presumed to have been killed by the herdsmen, Yohanna told the news service.
“It is over a week now that he has not been seen, and nothing has been heard about him,” she said.
