Fulani Islamic Militants Attack Christians in Plateau State

[309] prayers in [16] nations have been posted for Attacked Christians.

On Jan. 8, 2020, Fulani Islamic militants attacked the predominantly Christian village of Kulben, in northern Nigeria’s Plateau state, killing at least 12. The men of the village took their wives and children to safety in the bush before returning to defend their homes and land from the three-hour onslaught. Since the attack, 36 villagers have been staying in a nearby village, as most are now too afraid to return home. Pray for those who lost family members, homes and farmland in these attacks.
