Slaughter: At Least 45 Killed In Northern Nigeria After Islamist Bombings Target Churches, Christian-Owned Businesses


The death toll continues to rise …

John 16:2b, “… the time is coming when those who kill you will think they are doing a holy service for God.”

Morning Star News – “Suspected terrorists from the Islamic extremist Boko Haram group set off four bombs that hit two churches in Kano city on Monday night (July 29), killing at least 45 people, sources said.

The Rev. Ramsey Noah, chairman of the Kano state chapter of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN), told Morning Star News by phone the Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) were planted near three churches, blasting two of them as well as nearby Christian-owned businesses. The four devices were detonated minutes apart between 9 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. in the Sabon Gari area of the city, sources said.

Christians were meeting at Christ Salvation Pentecostal Church at 41 New Road when one explosion hit, and 39 bodies were recovered in the area, Christian leaders said. Christians were also meeting at St. Stephen’s Anglican Church as another bomb went off, and an explosion apparently targeting Peniel Baptist Church did not affect the structure, Noah said.

‘On Monday evening at about 9 p.m., four bombs exploded in the Sabon Gari area of Kano,’ Noah told Morning Star News. ‘The bombs we believe were targeted at three churches located in the area. There were worshippers in the two churches affected at the time having evening Bible study programs.’

Total deaths from the church bombings were unknown at press time, but Noah said that as security personnel moved into the area, church leaders had established that at least 45 people in the predominantly Christian area had been killed.” Read more.

Flashback: Nigeria: Thousands Flee As Islamic Militants Kill Christians, Threaten ‘Massive Bloodbath’ – “Nigerian Islamic militants have threatened a massive bloodbath after killing at least two Christians in recent days, forcing thousands of people to flee their villages along Nigeria’s northeast, refugees said Saturday June 22. The reported threats came as local believers were mourning Christian Toma Vongjen, 40, who was reportedly killed by Fulani Muslims in attacks that also left church buildings in four villages in Plateau state completely destroyed. The June 18 violence in Wase area, 216 kilometers (134 miles) southeast of Jos city, came days after other militants of the group Boko Haram, or ‘Western education is a sin’, killed a pastor and torched four churches in Borno state, residents said.” Read more.

Flashback: Islam In Africa: ‘An Invisible Genocide Where Sadistic Killers Slaughter And Execute Thousands Of Christians’ – “The UN does nothing, the world is silent, and most Western citizens, who know little about Africa, do not know it is happening. The goal is creating a big African-Islamic continent. Christians must be killed or expelled. Fom Nigeria to Sudan, it is raging, the ‘Odium Fidei’, the war of religion. A genocide epitomized not by the images of Sydney Pollack’s ‘Out of Africa’, which presents a continent that is rich and attractive, but by the Nigerian village of Dogo Nahawa, where Islamists, armed with machetes, killed 300 Christians, mostly women and children.” Read more.

      As much as the flesh would love to see them all destroyed sooner rather than later, vengeance belongs to God. There are still souls that can be saved.

    It is high time the Christian (so called) nations demand reciprocity in freedom of faith. If these Islamic people can come and build mosques and minarets in England, Italy, France etc. Why they hell should not tolerate Christianity. There is also another factor. In England, Muslims are aliens and they are given freedom. But in Nigeria, the Christians are indegenous and they are denied rights. Awake all nations before it is too late. After all what can we expect form these people who bomb their own i.e. Sunni killing Shia
