Tragic Incident in Benue State, Nigeria: 37 Christians Killed by Terrorists

End of days prophesies unfolding on a daily basis.  

In recent weeks, the Christian community in Benue state, Nigeria, has been facing a devastating wave of attacks perpetrated by Fulani herdsmen and other terrorists. On Sunday (July 16), six Christians were tragically killed in the villages of Igba-Ukyor and Tse Baka, Ushongo County. This is just one of the many incidents that have resulted in the death of 37 Christians over the past three weeks in the state.

The assailants, armed with deadly weapons and riding on motorcycles, have been targeting predominantly Christian communities. In addition to the recent attack, two other villages, Zaki Akpuuna and Diom, were brutally assaulted on July 8, leading to the massacre of 30 Christians.

These violent acts have left families torn apart, communities devastated, and hearts heavy with grief. The victims, who belonged to the Universal Reformed Christian Church (NKST) and the Roman Catholic Church, were innocent lives lost in senseless acts of violence.

Amidst the chaos, Pastor Wiles, known for his daily TV show broadcast on the TruNews network, has called for prayers and support for the affected families. The attacks have led to a united front of Christian leaders appealing to the federal government for urgent action to end the atrocities.

Nigeria has been grappling with a rise in violence against Christians, making it the country with the highest number of Christians killed for their faith in 2022. The attacks on Christians have continued unabated, with the Fulani, Boko Haram, Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP), and others conducting raids on Christian communities.

The situation in Nigeria demands urgent attention, and the international community must stand in solidarity with the persecuted Christian communities. It is essential to address the root causes of these attacks, protect the vulnerable, and ensure the safety and well-being of all citizens. Let us unite in prayer for peace, justice, and an end to violence against Christians in Nigeria.
