share on:

At least one pastor, his son and 28 other Christians were reportedly killed last Sunday in the villages of Gindin Waya and Sondi in Wukari Local Government Council of Adamawa State by suspected Hausa-Fulani insurgents. The President of Christian Reformed Church, Nigeria, CRC-N, Rev. Caleb Ahima wrote to the CAN president, Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor alleged carnage and genocide by Islamic insurgents in the Wukari LGA, since February 2014.

According to Pastor Ahima, the predominantly Christian southern part of the state, precisely the Wukari LGA, came under attack again on Sunday, adding that the villages of Gindin Waya and Sondi were attacked while Christians had gathered to worship.

Continuing, he said reports reaching the headquarters of the CRC-N Church in Takum, southern Taraba State, also confirmed that another pastor, Nuhu Useni, was killed by the Hausa-Fulani as he went to see his farm, noting that the body of the fallen pastor was expected in Wukari, the capital of the LGA on Monday for burial.

According to the pastor, the Fulani-Hausa are determined to wipe out Southern Taraba and pleaded with the government to wade in. He says: “How come that one local government area has been attacked seven times now and it seems as if the country has no good security intelligence gathering network, or that security reports are not being used?”
