Nigeria (Christian Post)
Fulani militants continue to wreak havoc wherever they go. After militants “raped and murdered a pregnant woman belonging to the predominantly Christian Numan community...and also killed her husband and brother when they tried to [intervene],” tensions between Christians and the Fulani militants increased. World reported that those in the community attempted a counterattack, but were ambushed instead. Militants killed over 100 Christians, and it is thought that they had help from the military.
- Pray for the Christians in Nigeria who have endured years of persecution at the hands of this group.
- Pray that Christians would be protected from this group.
- Pray that the Nigerian government would show diligent efforts to protect minorities.
