Nigeria: Islamists Burn Down 100 Homes In Christian Village


Qur’an Sura 2:191-193, “And slay them wherever ye find them, and drive them out of the places whence they drove you out, for persecution [of Muslims] is worse than slaughter [of non-Muslims] … and fight them until persecution is no more, and religion is for Allah.”

By Sarduana Magazine – “At least four people were killed and more than 100 houses burnt down on Saturday when members of the Boko Haram, attacked Arboko village behind Gwoza hills in Borno State.

The gunmen were said to have launched the attack around 2:30 am on Saturday and overran the villages before dawn. The village is said to be inhabited by a tiny Christian minority.

Executive Director, Stefanos Foundation, Mr. Mark Lipdo, said in a text message on Saturday that cries by the villagers for help did not yield any fruit, until they were completely overrun by the gunmen.

He said, ‘Reports just coming in now around 2:30 am says Arboko community of Gwoza, Borno state is presently under attack. Sources said houses are now on fire. Villages behind Gwoza hills said their plea for soldiers to protect them has not been heeded and these majority Christian communities have continued to come under attack.’

He added, ‘Latest report says four people were killed and over 100 houses burnt in the attack.'” Read more.
