Christians Have Been the Major Target of Fulani Herdsmen


A report on the Fulani Herdsmen attack has reported that more than 15 villages have come under sever attack of the Fulani Herdsmen.  The Fulani Herdsmen have killed Christian in a deadly attacks which is geared towards eradicating Christians and establish the Islamization agenda.
It has become a worrisome situation when the religious leaders who were supposed to lead the fight towards social justice for Christians are in fear preaching the re-election of the killer government in 2019.

According to the report, Dozens of people have been killed after the gangs ransacked towns and villages to clear them of all aspects of the Christian faith.
Houses belonging to believers have also been razed with authorities doing little to help, an anti-persecution watchdog claimed.

Highlighting some of the attacks, Christian persecution is a major problem in Nigeria which has been exacerbated by the spread of radical Islamic teaching and practice. It has been noted that Christians needed more protection from the country’s leader or lives would continue to be lost.
“The Fulani were able to carry out their deadly attack. They stayed for hours in the vicinity, moving at will, unchallenged.”

While the roles of the federal government in these attacks remained questionable and the focus on Christians have only highlighted some basic attacks but on a serious note, the Fulani Herdsmen attack have become a daily occurrence and the president of Nigerian seem to be more focused on the 2019 election than give adequate attention to the dying Christians whose voice have gone faint for crying too long.

Details of the attack, which took place in north-eastern state of Adamawa earlier this year, have only just emerged.  In the central state of Nasarawa, 25 villages have been destroyed since January 15.
Again, the predominately Christian victims said they had been abandoned by leaders.
A spokesman for the Concerned Indigenous Tiv People group said: “Since the outbreak of the crisis on January 15 this year, due to the Fulani /herdsmen attack on our villages, leading to the displacement of Tiv in their ancestral homes, the Nasarawa State Governor, Tanko Almakura, has done very little to bring the situation under control.”

Other attacks have taken place in Benue State and across the Middle Belt region of the country. The Army has now been deployed to certain areas in order to stop the violence.  But it is shocking that the Army have proven to be working more with the Fulani Herdsmen rather than protect Christians in the embattled regions.
