Like A Killing Field

Ethnic Fulani Muslims killed at least 82 people from the village of Agatu, Benue State, in Nigera’s “Middle Belt” in an attack at 4 a.m. on 15 March, in which they also destroyed houses, food barns, trees and farmland. ” The entire village is like a killing field, with the stench of blood everywhere,” said a local resident. The village is inhabited by the mainly Christian Egba ethnic group. Frequent attacks by Fulani Muslim herdsmen add to the pressures faced by Nigerian Christians, who also a main target of Boko Haram militants. Pray that the Lord will comfort those who lost loved ones and pray also for healing for 25 villagers who were injured in the attack.
