Dozens Killed, Many Displaced in Islamist Attack on Miango Village

[177] prayers in [14] nations have been posted for Christians in Miango.

In recent weeks, militant Fulani Muslims have attacked villages in the Miango area of Plateau state, Nigeria, killing many and displacing thousands. As the violence escalated over the following days, the Islamists destroyed hundreds of homes and churches as well as the villagers’ crops, which were being prepared for harvest, eliminating their food source and livelihoods. “The reason for the attack is simple: the Fulani want to wipe out the Christian communities,” a front-line worker said. Pray for an end to the violence so that front-line workers can respond to the needs of those who suffered in the attack. Pray for those who have lost loved ones and homes, and pray those suffering from the attacks will be healed. Pray also that the Islamists will experience the love of God in Christ.
