Nigeria: Christians Forced To Convert Or Die After Muslims Seize Town And Burn Down Churches
Because “Allah” hath spoken …
Revelation 13:15, “The second beast was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast, so that the image could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed.”
Revelation 14:12, “Here is the patience of the saints; here are those who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus.”
Open Doors – “Boko Haram have raised their flag over Mubi, Adamawa State’s second largest town and commercial hub, after seizing it on Wednesday 29 October. They have renamed the town ‘Madinatul Islam’, which means ‘City of Islam’. ‘The situation for believers trapped in Mubi is too terrible for ears to hear,’ writes Open Doors researcher Isaac.
Some who managed to escape Mubi told Isaac that Boko Haram are burning churches and forcing trapped Christians to convert to Islam. Many who refused to convert are being tortured in an effort to make them renounce their faith in Jesus, and a number of them have been stoned to death.
Isaac was also told that Muslims who were found ‘wanting in terms of sharia’ have also been killed. The witness confirmed reports of public amputations for those accused of looting.
Isaac has travelled to the area to encourage refugees fleeing Mubi and to assess their needs. ‘We are at the moment with some of the fleeing refugees, but the fear and uncertainty are making things difficult.’
Those fleeing Mubi face difficult conditions on the road. Gift Ugo told Vanguard, a local newspaper, that she ran into the bush during the attack where she spent four days without food. She survived by drinking water from streams.
Another, Rebecca Teri, told Vanguard, ‘We started running and in the process, I lost contact with my husband and seven year old daughter.’ She has still not found them.
Many of the refugees have headed to Yola, but the mood there is sombre. Boko Haram have threatened to capture the town, which is causing great fear. Others are trying to escape to Cameroon.” 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.
