These were two attacks by suspected Fulani militants in two different areas in Nigeria, resulting in 30 deaths, including more than 20 who were killed in the middle of a Sunday wedding.

Night attacks

On Monday, the local media reported that 10 people were killed during a nighttime attack on a village.

Pastor Isaac Ango Makama, vice president of the Zango Kataf chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria, corroborated the attack in comments provided to the Daily Post.

According to his statements, there were as many as 50 terrorists who frequently fired their weapons and set houses on fire.

The pastor said that while most of the bodies of the dead were sent to a local hospital, some members of the community are still searching for their relatives.

Killings in the middle of a wedding

Yashen Titus, head of the local community development association, told Vanguard that a group of armed men opened fire on a wedding party on Sunday around 10:35 pm.

He said 19 people were killed at the wedding site, while two others died in a hospital. The injured were also taken to the hospital.

Persecution intensifies

Nigeria has had this kind of difficulty for several years now. Where Christians are continually being killed by these radical groups.

Faced with this, international human rights defenders have tried to draw the attention of the authorities to put a stop to the killings; but there is no response.

The genocides carried out by Islamic militants are considered to be perpetuated by the government’s indolence. This has been a source of criticism over the past few years.
