Update: Islamists Slaughter Dozens Of Christian Students At Nigerian College, ‘Nigeria Is Becoming A Killing Field’


Here’s an update on this story. Apparently Boko Haram Islamists were asking each student their names prior to deciding which ones to kill for a reason: to identify and slaughter all who were Christian …

By Katherine Weber – “Multiple sources have confirmed that about 25 to 30 Christian college students were massacred at a university in northeastern Nigeria late Monday night, causing Christians to pray for a ‘change of heart’ among the extremist Islamist group Boko Haram to put a stop to the continued violence.

While there is speculation as to the motive of the massacre, sources close to the human rights watchdog Open Doors USA confirm that the massacre was performed by Boko Haram.

Emily Fuentes, the communications and public relations coordinator for Open Doors who recently visited Nigeria and spoke to Christian leaders about Boko Haram, told The Christian Post that believers around the world can agree that prayer is the ‘only thing that will change the people of Boko Haram.’

‘There are people who are turning to Christ who used to be in the Boko Haram, and God is changing their hearts,’ Fuentes told CP.

‘A lot of Christians believe that God will change these peoples’ hearts,’ she added.

The killings reportedly occurred in the late night hours on Oct. 1, when masked gunmen went door-to-door in the off-campus housing section of Federal Polytechnic College in Mubi, a city in the remote Adamawa State in northeastern Nigeria.

Open Doors USA sources confirmed that the gunmen separated the Christian students from the Muslim students, addressed each victim by name, questioned them, and then proceeded to shoot them or slit their throat.

‘Open Doors is calling on Christians in the West to bear this horrific burden with our brothers and sisters in Mubi and Adamawa state,’ Open Doors USA spokesman Jerry Dykstra said in a press release emailed to The Christian Post.

‘Nigeria is becoming a killing field,’ he added.” Read more.

Flashback: Boko Haram: Our Goal is to Eliminate Followers of Christ – “Terrorist organisation Boko Haram has issued a statement making clear that its goal is to eliminate followers of Christ from Nigeria and establish an Islamic state. ‘The Nigerian state and Christians are our enemies and we will be launching attacks on the Nigerian state and its security apparatus as well as churches until we achieve our goal of establishing an Islamic state in place of the secular state … We are responsible for the suicide attack on a church in Jos and also another attack on another church in Biu,’ a spokesman for the group, Abul Qaqa, is said to have told reporters in the northeastern city of Maiduguri over the phone.” Read more.

    Praying for our brothers and sisters there and all of the middle east. This continues to break my heart. Praying for the Holy Spirit to surround them with protection, courage and strength. Also to continue showing the Spirit to everyone, in hopes they will turn to you. In Jesus name.

    Our God is powerful to save. Things are not always as they appear. To the natural eye, Jesus was a victim of his enemys. In the spiritual realm, his sacrifice on our behalf is responsible for the salvation of millions by the same act.

    Why do Christians believe they need to tell the truth to their enemies? If they had lied, they’d still be alive to fight another day.

          It is not Apples to Oranges. We were told by Jesus that if we deny him, then he would deny us. That means we must not lie about our beliefs, even that sentences us to death.

          If I was a Christian, that would NOT have been a lie “within”. But rather, a diversion to try to stay alive to be able to kill those bastards on another day. Getting buried is of no help to those Christians to be massacred in the future by those mooselems I was not able to kill.

            Jesus said not to be afraid of the man that takes your life but rather fear the one that would take your llife and soul. Even Jesus Alex for the ones who crucified him to ne forgiven.

              Sounds like pure selfishness on your part. You believe you’re going to Heaven. Therefore, screw the rest you might have been able to save with a little smarts.

                No mathchopper my heart breaks for those lost. God doesn’t want any to perish but hopes that all will come to Him. I pray and many like me are trying feverishly to warn those who are lost that time is short and God has so much love to give if you would just embrace Him. All it takes is to acknowledge that jesus died for us. And ask him into your life.

    Remember that the Lord counts these souls who die here as precious , and this world is NOTHING compared to the heavenly reality, which is an eternal reality in the Presence of Pure Love and absolute genius! The first shall be last and the last shall be first; in Rev it says they who died for their faith here will serve God in His temple, where the universe and all that is in it Praises Him. Sounds foolish to those who are perishing but for many who believe, it is nothing nor foolish for a man ‘ to give up that which he cannot keep to gain that which he cannot loose”-JIm Elliott
    Blessing Him and praying for the strengh and grace of the Holy Spirit in our dear brethren who suffer and die daily in Him all over the world . Forget them Not, no never, knowing the days comes when every knee shall bow and every tongue confess “Yeshua Ha Messiach, Jesus Christ IS LORD!
