Four die in Istanbul-it’s world news. A dozen die in a coach crash near Barcelona-ditto. This happens almost weekly in Nigeria-few know or care!!!

Fulani herder.

Fulani militants on horseback are reported to have attacked a village in Buruku local government area of Benue state on Thursday.   Residents of Tombo village were shot and attacked with machetes. About 15 people have been confirmed dead.   ‘It’s unclear why the world still stands aloof from the genocide being carried out on the minorities in Nigeria,’ our partner said.   Please pray for an end to this repeated violence by Fulanis against Christian farming communities.

  • Pray that Nigeria’s Government would finally take strong action to protect vulnerable Christian communities and to bring those responsible for these atrocities to justice.
  • Pray that God would intervene on His children’s behalf.
  • Pray for all those who are mourning the loss of family and friends, especially children traumatised by the ongoing violence.
