Brutal Attacks Occurring Daily in Jos

[369] prayers in [19] nations have been posted for More anti-Christian attacks.

The middle-belt city of Jos has remained in turmoil since Fulani Islamic militants began an ongoing campaign of violence in the region. On Sept. 27, Nigerian military personnel allowed a group of Fulani men to enter the Rukuba Road neighborhood in Jos, where the Fulani militants killed 20 people in their homes. Angry with both the Fulani and the military, residents of the neighborhood rioted. Several people were killed and property was destroyed. Attacks continued for days, with reports of Fulani militants dressed as soldiers knocking on doors and then slaughtering residents with machetes and guns. On Oct. 1 and 2, the terrorists killed seven at the University of Jos. “The people who have been injured include children as young as 2 years old,” a VOM staff member said. “We have been attacked multiple times starting from 2001. However, this is one of the most brutal attacks.” VOM staff in the region are focusing on helping the injured and encouraging those who have lost family members. Please pray for intervention.

  • Our Father. There is a a song glinging in my heart. In Nigeria this same song is present every day: I'll soon be free from every trial
    My body sleep in the churchyard
    I'll drop the cross of self denial
    And enter on my great reward
    I'm going home to see my Jesus.
    I'm going home no more to roam
    I'm just going over Jordan
    I'm just going over home. Amen
