 Hundreds Slaughtered in Nigeria



ICC Note

“Nigerian government authorities were in such a hurry to hide the extent of the massacre that they organized mass burials of the victims almost immediately after the attacks. As a result, the exact death toll remains unknown.”

05/16/2011 Nigeria (ANS) –While many in Nigeria were still celebrating the victory of Christian presidential candidate Goodluck Jonathan, Christians in northern Nigeria were grieving over the mass graves that would be the final resting place of their loved ones.

International Christian Concern (ICC) is reporting that in the Muslim north, Muslim mobs reacted to the news of Goodluck’s election on April 18th by launching massive simultaneous attacks against Christians in almost every northern state.

The mobs massacred hundreds of Christians, torched more than 300 churches, and destroyed countless Christian homes.

“Nigerian government authorities were in such a hurry to hide the extent of the massacre that they organized mass burials of the victims almost immediately after the attacks. As a result, the exact death toll remains unknown,” a spokesperson for ICC told the ASSIST News Service (www.assistnews.net).

ICC went on to say that in Kaduna state, where Christians suffered the greatest losses, their sources estimate that at least 300 people were slaughtered in the towns of Zonkwa and Kafanchan, alone.

Today, close to a thousand families are displaced and living in camps set up by the government. More than 200 families lost their homes, and hundreds more have fled their homes in fear of continued attacks.

Like in where is the media? I haven't heard a peep regarding this from the major networks.
