36 Nigerian Christians were kidnapped from their village by Islamic extremists this week

Kaduna State's long night of brutal Islamic terrorism continues:

On Monday, July 25, an estimated 36 Christians were kidnapped from a village in Nigeria's Kaduna state. The kidnappers are estimated to be Islamic extremists who performed door-to-door kidnappings in the village.

An area resident described the kidnappings to Morning Star News. They said, "The Muslim terrorists attacked the community at about 9 p.m., shooting at the people, and broke into their houses and forcefully took away the victims to an unknown place." ...

A week ago, two Catholic priests were kidnapped in Nigeria's Kaduna state and one of them, Reverend John Mark Cheitnum, was later killed on July 19.

It is worth noting that the U.S. Department of State advises "reconsidering" travel to Nigeria, in particular Kaduna State:

Violent crime – such as armed robbery, assault, carjacking, kidnapping, hostage taking, banditry, and rape – is common throughout the country. Kidnappings for ransom occur frequently, often targeting dual national citizens who have returned to Nigeria for a visit, as well as U.S. citizens with perceived wealth. Kidnapping gangs have also stopped victims on interstate roads.

Terrorists continue plotting and carrying out attacks in Nigeria, especially in the Northeast. Terrorists may attack with little or no warning, targeting shopping centers, malls, markets, hotels, places of worship, restaurants, bars, schools, government installations, transportation hubs, and other places where crowds gather. Terrorists are known to work with local gangs to expand their reach.

Give a prayer of thanks if you do not live in such a dangerous place—and many prayers of relief for those who do.
