No media outcry as hundreds of Christians have been murdered in Nigeria since January




In what can only be described as mostly swept under the carpet, there has been little to no media outcry of hundreds of Christians have been viciously murdered in Nigeria since January.

The charity Barnabas Fund has reported that Islamist attacks on Christian villages in Nigeria have been steadily escalating since January with at least 300 having been murdered in the past 2 months.

Fulani herdsmen have launched attack on at least seven Christian villages in last the few weeks raping and slaughtering non-Muslims with machine gunfire and machetes.

In one single attack in February in Karamai 41 people were killed and an entire village was burnt the ground by the Muslim terrorists.

In another attack by the same militants on a different Christian village on March 11th 71 people were killed and 100 houses were burnt.

Nigerian authorities discovered the bodies of 173 people, mostly children in a mass grave in February.

Nigeria has been blighter by Islamists terror and atrocities for years with the Islamic State affiliated Boko Harem (books are bad) based in the north of the country being the deadliest terror group in the world.

So far international media has shown little interest in the ongoing violence against Christians in Nigeria.
