World Most Populous Black Nation In Perilous Times, 14 Killed In Night Raid

Nigeria, the largest country in Africa and world most populous black nation is emmeshed in insecurity challenge with people being killed on a daily basis without authorities rising to the challenge. 
This week alone, hundreds of people have been killed mostly in Christian community of Plateau, Benue, Southern Kaduna, and other parts of Northern Nigeria by Fulani militias.
A North Western State Governor of Kaduna, Nasir el-Rufai, had disclosed they know the terrorists, their locations and phone numbers but the head of the government who failed to provide security despite his campaign promises, has also failed to address the bereft.

Militants suspected to be Fulani have killed 14 Christians, including women and children, in North Central State of Benue Monday night, a Christian Centre worried about the sad incidences disclosed.

The killing took place in Tarka Local Government Area of Benue State, the Christian Centre based in the United States said.

Worrying pictures of the scene of the incident showed deceased lying on the ground, with machetes used in cutting their lives short.
Children even below the age of three were killed by the terrorists that attacked the Christian community.

The State of Benue is populated by Christian and the governor, Samuel Ortom, who has been crying over the killings without help, seems to have been overwhelmed.

Frequently condemning the killings of Christians in Northern Nigeria, Ortom has been made a target of militants attack who attempted to assassinate him in 2021 but he had to ran for distance before rescue came his way.

The US faith-based association said in 2021, Nigeria earned the distinction of being the worst country for Christian persecution in ICC’s 2021 Persecutor of the Year Awards.

It was gathered that radicalised and armed militants mostly Fulani have killed tens of thousands of Christians and left more than 3 million displaced.

The report reads: “Christian communities in the Middle Belt region of Nigeria have effectively suffered a 20-year genocide,” said ICC President Jeff King. “Where is any action? The Nigerian government gives these attacks lip service without any meaningful response. Where is the outcry? Where is effective action? In Nigeria, the military, the police, and the intelligence agencies are all controlled by Muslims.

“This, coupled with a 20-year lack of response by these agencies, should naturally lead to deeper questioning by the international community. Simply put, the time for cheap talk and platitudes is over. The world is waking up and starting to ask, ‘Is the Nigerian government complicit in these attacks?’ Time will tell, but for this long-time watcher, the decision is in.”
