32 Christians Brutally Murdered By Radical Muslims In Nigeria

More than 30 Christians have been murdered by radical Muslims in Nigeria last week, reported CBN. Fulani herdsmen have assaulted the Christians around 4 a.m. in the Karamar village in the Maro district of Kajuru, reported The Guardian.
The herdsman began by setting fire to several houses and a church, after this the terrorists started shooting at families that were trying to escape.

Senior special assistant to the Governor, Samuel Aruwan, said that "the state government has been assured that the security agencies are working assiduously to contain the situation. The government is saddened by these attacks, condemns the perpetrators and urges all residents of the area to support the security agencies in their efforts to protect communities."

The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) also spoke and said that and urged young Nigerians not to retaliate against the terrorists.

"We have appealed to the youths in the area that there must never be any reprisal. We want to give the security operatives in the state the benefit of the doubt to go after the killers. We don't want any reprisal attack because the circle of violence and killings will continue," Rev. Joseph Hayap added.

"Realistically speaking, Christianity is on the brink of extinction in Nigeria," Emmanuel claimed during a forum. "The ascendancy of Sharia ideology in Nigeria rings the death knell for the Nigerian Church."

"In 2018, we can say in 25 years from now, we are facing the risk of being the last Christians in Nigeria," Emmanuel claimed. "Therefore, Christians should be in the frontline of defending democracy in Nigeria."
Christian persecution watchdog group Open Doors ranks Nigeria high on the "World Watch List," sitting at number 12 just below Syria.
