At least 32 people were killed in a Muslim Fulani herder attack on a Christian area of north-central Nigeria on Tuesday (February 26, 2019).
The early morning assault on villages in and around Maro, in Kajuru County of Kaduna state, came after a February 10 herdsmen attack on Angwan Barde, in the same county, that killed 10 Catholic Christians along with an unborn child.
In this week’s attack in Maro, the Fulani herdsmen also damaged church buildings and property.
According to the Evangelical Church Winning All (ECWA) many of its missionaries working among the area Adara (known as Kadara by the Hausa) and Katari ethnic groups have been displaced.
According to the Rev. Bakari Ibrahim, director of the ECWA’s Evangelical Missionary Society (EMS), Aa boarding school for the children of missionaries in Kufana town has been closed.
“Please pray for peace in Kaduna state – hundreds have been displaced and hundreds killed by the Fulani jihadists. We evacuated about hundred EMS kids from Kufana for safety. Many of our missionaries working among the Kadara tribe and some in Katari areas have been displaced. Please keep praying for our nation.”
