Jihadists Kill Nigerian Pastor, Burn Woman's Home After Murdering Son

Fulani Jihadists Kill Nigerian Pastor and Burn Woman’s Home After Murdering Her Son; ‘Killing Our People Has Become Routine’

A Nigerian woman, whose husband was killed by Fulani herdsmen two years ago, is now mourning the loss of her son by the same group of attackers.

The day after Celina Ishaku buried her beloved son, extremists set her home on fire. The attack took place on July 28 in the Plateau State’s Miango District. They even shot at mourners attending the boy’s funeral, according to International Christian Concern.

“Fulani (militants) killed my husband two years ago and burned down my house,” Ishaku told ICC. “My farm was destroyed three days ago, now my son is killed, and my house burned down again.”

Mr. Chinge Dodo, president of the Irigwe Youth Movement, explained that villagers are constantly living in fear of being attacked which is causing more terror and tension within the area.

“As a people, we are continuously under attack and nobody seems to be hearing our cry for help,” he declared. “It appears that killing our people has become a routine.”

Morning Star News reports that Rev. Danlami Yakwoi of the Evangelical Church Winning All (ECWA) was killed Thursday by Fulani herdsmen. He was kidnapped on July 12 and died two weeks later after being tortured.

Yakwoi, two of his sons, and a nephew were abducted from the Tawari area. Musa Shekwol, secretary for ECWA, confirmed that Yakwoi’s family paid a ransom.

“One of his children who was kidnapped along with him was released on Sunday, July 25, and he informed us that his father died a day before his release by the herdsmen,” Shekwolo told Morning Star News.
