Reacting to the Article Nnamdi Kanu said
” A slow-motion war is under way…a massacre of Christians, massive in scale & horrific in brutality. And the world has hardly noticed.” Thank you @BHL, @WSJ
for bearing witness to the brutality Christians in Nigeria face at the hands of the Fulani:
Every day, Christians in Nigeria are horrifically murdered by the Fulani, an Islamic extremist group, who according to the 2019 Global Terrorism Index, has become more deadly than BokoHaram. Now they are exposed for the world to see by @BHL @WSJ.
@BHL @WSJ details the harrowing stories that #Nigerian #Christians know all too well – stories like that of a pregnant woman named Jumai Victor whose 4 children were murdered in front of her eyes by #Fulani screaming “Allahu Akbar!” before they turned a machete on her left arm.
Before villagers can take shelter or flee, the invaders are upon them in their houses, swinging machetes, burning, pillaging, raping. They don’t kill everyone. At some point they stop, recite a verse from the Quran, round up the livestock and retreat…”
“They need survivors to spread fear from village to village, to bear witness that the #Fulani raiders fear nothing but Allah and are capable of anything.” So how has this reign of terror gone unchecked? @BHL’s driver said it best: “The army is in league with the #Fulani. They go hand in hand.” After one attack, “we even found a dog tag and a uniform.
Or ask Dalyop Salomon Mwantiri, a lawyer in the region who represents victims, and who told @BHL : “The general staff of the #Nigerian army is a #Fulani. The whole bureaucracy is Fulani.”
Will the West let history repeat itself in Nigeria? Will we wait…until the disaster is done before taking notice? Will we stand by as international Islamic extremism opens a new front across this vast land, where the children of Abraham have coexisted for so long?” – @BHL
Nigerian Christians can’t afford to wait. The world must take notice before it’s too late.
