Christians Killed by Muslims; Hundreds Displaced in Kano, Nigeria
NIGERIA
– On September 28, angry Muslims killed 10 Christians and injured more
than 50 people, all because of their faith in Jesus Christ. They also
set churches, homes and businesses on fire in Tudun Wada, in Nigeria’s
northern state of Kano. Attacks such as these on Christians in Northern
Nigeria sadly reveal the persecution that Christians endure in this
predominantly Muslim area.
According to The Voice of the Martyrs’ contacts in Nigeria,
“Christians left their homes that morning to go to their various places
of work and business, and at 9 a.m., Muslims began the attacks, setting
fire to homes and churches. They attacked and killed any Christian they
came across.”
VOM contacts added, “Muslim attackers burnt down all eight
churches existing in the community, homes and businesses in the area,
displacing innocent victims.”
Christians believe the attack started when Muslim students at a
government secondary school in the area claimed a Christian student
drew a cartoon of the Prophet Muhammad on the wall of the school’s
mosque. VOM contacts reported, “The Christians proved the allegation to
be false, as no Christian student would do this, since the school has
nearly 2,000 students and only seven are Christian. Christian leaders
also refuted the allegation by saying that the mosque is usually busy
with Muslims praying around the clock during the (Muslim) Ramadan
fasting season; therefore, no Christian student would have any way of
getting close to the wall of the mosque to make such sketches on the
wall.”
Please pray for the families of those killed and ask God to
bestow His mercy for believers in this area who have lost their homes
and livelihoods.
