DON'T FORGET THAT THIS CONTINUES TO HAPPEN REGULARLY!
The human rights crises that are regularly occurring in Western Africa get very little press attention in the average news cycle. But they should:
Fulani militants attacked Nigeria's Chinke community of Kwall District on Thursday night, May 5, killing at least eight Christians and wounding several others.
...A representative for International Christian Concern (ICC) is currently at the hospital with a two-year-old gunshot wound survivor whose mother was killed in the attack.
"The attackers are Fulani militants with AK-47 rifles," another survivor of the attack told ICC. "They shouted, ‘Allah Akbar' [Allah is the greatest] and shot randomly."
There were warning signs before the attack, though they were not heeded by every authority in the area:
In response to this warning, an ICC representative went to the community before the attack began and rescued 15 children, whom he hid in his home beyond the scope of the assailants.
"Despite an early warning, we told government officials, but they kept silent and allowed Fulani militants to kill us," a leader in the community told ICC. "The government is silent over the killings in my region because we are Christians, not Fulani Muslims."
Prayers up, folks.
