Deuteronomy 30:7 And the LORD thy God will put all these curses upon thine enemies, and on them that hate thee, which persecuted thee.

Matthew 5:12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.

Southern Kaduna has been a hotbed and the valley of death for many Christians living within the vicinity.

One person was killed and several others were abducted when suspected Fulani radicals were said to have attacked a secondary school and burned a church in a predominantly Christian village in Nigeria.

 the attack occurred at Prince Academy in the Damba-Kasaya Community in Chikun local government area last Monday. 

Residents of the area accused Fulani militia of arriving in large numbers around 7:45 a.m. when they are said to have invaded the school, abducted a teacher and four of his students.

The militants also reportedly broke into the Aminchi Baptist Church, destroyed musical instruments and the church’s public address system before setting objects inside the church on fire. 

According to witness testimony, 35-year-old Benjamin Auta was attacked and leaves behind a wife and a baby.

“Our church, Aminchi Baptist Church, here in Damba Kasaya, was burned, and Mr. Benjamin Auta, aged 35, was killed during the attack.

In yet another series of attacks on Christians in Nigeria, armed Muslim Fulani herdsmen this week killed 11 people, including a 16-year-old girl, a father of nine, and a church pastor.

Between Sunday and Tuesday, Fulani herders killed 11 Christians in southern Kaduna.In the latest attack on Tuesday, a 16-year-old student, identified as Takama Paul, and another Christian, identified as 30-year-old Kefas Malachy Bobai, a father of three children, were killed in Unguwan Gankon village in Zangon Kataf County’s Gora Ward in southern Kaduna state.

Not so long ago, it was reported that they have killed over 1202 Nigerians in the region of southern Kaduna for being Christians in the past 6months. As Nigeria continues to struggle with the Boko Haram insurgency and the existence of its splinter group, Islamic State West African Province, APPG members are concerned about reports of escalating violence characterized as a “farmer-herder conflict” even though a disproportionate number of killings are being carried out by militant Fulani herdsmen against predominantly Christian farming communities in the country’s fertile Middle Belt region.  The governor of kaduma state, mallam el rufai, has remained mostly quiet over these killings, which has attracted condemnation from the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN . Violence against Christians in Nigeria “can pave the way for genocide,” a group of U.K. parliamentarians has warned as they got report over these killings. President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday held a private meeting with General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) Pastor Enoch Adeboye. Itis believed that this visit by the general overseer is not unconnected with the unabated killings in northern Nigeria, The terror group known as Boko Haram, and the recent enacted CAMA. Some faulted this assertion saying, People that doesn’t understand the Nigerian law and religion will say it was because of CAMA, but Christian leaders doesn’t deal directly with government on the issue of Constitution, they relate through proxy like CAN, PFN or other members of the church who are part of the government. After the meeting, the general overseer unfortunately refused to grant any interview to the press.
