Nigerians slaughtered in mass killing during 24-hour curfew
Armed Fulani herders launched a series of attacks during a 24-hour curfew in a predominantly Christian area in Nigeriaâ€™s Kaduna state, killing about 33 people and burning down dozens of homes, according to reports.
While police said Fulani gunmen killed 21 villagers, local community leaders put the death toll at 33 in the attacks on five villages, according to AFP.
The attacks took place in the Atyap Chiefdom in Zangon Kataf Local Government Area on Wednesday and Thursday, according to the U.K.-based Christian Solidarity Worldwide, which said armed men traveling in trucks killed six people and burned 20 homes in Apiashyim village, and killed seven people in Kibori village....
I'm an independent Baptist pastor in southern Nigeria. It's not just that we think our government doesn't care about the killings, the general view is that there's no way people in the government aren't complicit in what appears to be a convoluted plot to hand this country over to the Muslim fulanis!

Carl, your comment was right on and simply demonstrates the hypocrisy of governments. They simply donâ€™t care about the lives of these poor and destitute people. I sometimes try to imagine what it must be like to live in an area where there is this kind of evil taking place around me and I simply canâ€™t comprehend it.
