Washington, D.C. (May 6, 2011)International Christian Concern (ICC) has learned that today, Muslim attackers killed 17 Christians including a wife and three children of a pastor, and burned down several Christian homes in the village of Kurum, Bauchi State, Nigeria. It is not right for anyone to kill another person. Life is precious and gift from God. Since 1999 in Bauchi state several Christians have been killed but no one has been brought before justice. The government has to intervene. The government has to be fair to all its citizens, said Reverend Turbe Ngodem in an interview with ICC. Reverend Ngodem is the General Secretary of Christian Association of Nigeria in Bauchi State.Since the introduction of sharia law in northern Nigeria in 1999, thousands of Christians have been killed by Muslim radicals in an unrelenting series of regular attacks. The local Muslim government officials have failed to bring the perpetrators to justice.Jonathan Racho, ICCs Regional Manager for Africa, said, We are extremely concerned with this latest killing of Christians by Muslim attackers. We once again urge Nigerian officials to prevent bloodshed of innocent Christians in northern Nigeria. Nigeria must end impunity for the perpetrators of these heinous crimes.Please call the Nigerian embassy in your country and politely ask Nigerian officials to fully investigate this latest attack and bring the perpetrators of the attack to justice.Nigerian Embassies:USA: Phone (202) 986-8400 Fax (202)362-6541 UK: Phone 0207 839 1244 Fax 0207 839 8746 Canada: Phone (613) 236-0521/3 Fax (613) 236-0529 Email [email protected] Germany: Phone +49-(030) 21230 Fax +49-(030) 21230212 Email [email protected]http://www.persecution.org/2011/05/06/muslim-attackers-kill-seventeen-christians-in-nigeria/
It seems clear again that when islam is in control, their version of "peace" is to eradicate christians or whoever opposes them.Thank you Lord for the grace flowing to these saints who remain and the reward for those gone home, and may those who carried out the crimes be met by the drawing of the precious Holy Spirit to Jesus the Redeemer.Ruf
rufnrust, I agree with your post.There but for the Grace of God go I. It is only by God's Good Providence I was born in a Country that is still free from Muslim oppression. Or, considering the matter of God's Good Providence, it is His mercy that I am not counted with the oppressors.Praying for the saints and for those who need to turn to Jesus.
