Gunmen suspected to be Fulani Militants attacked Madamai and Abun villages in Kaduna state on Sunday night, killing over 30 people, according to International Christian Concern, quoting Sahara Reporters.

“Gunmen suspected to be Fulani herdsmen were said to have invaded the villages and fired gunshots indiscriminately,”. “No less than 15 houses were burnt by the attackers”.

“The incident comes a few hours after one person was killed, while several others sustained injuries in an attack at Evangelical Church Winning All (ECWA),” continued the report.

“The gunmen were said to have attacked worshippers during the Sunday morning service.”

On December 7th, The U.S. State Department added Nigeria to their list of Countries of Particular Concern for tolerating “systematic, ongoing, egregious violations of religious freedom.”
