December 30, 2016 – Fulani Herdsmen Kill 808, Injures 57 In Predominantly Christian Community In Kaduna State

Fulani Herdsmen Kill 808 Christians, Destroy 1422 Houses & 16 Churches In Kaduna State Nigeria

The Catholic Archdiocese of Kafanchan alleged yesterday that the latest attacks in southern Kaduna State had claimed 808 lives with 57 injured.

It also alleged that 53 villages were attacked

Governor Nasir El-Rufai has described the attackers as foreign Fulani herdsmen, who were avenging past attacks on them and their livestock.

Addressing a news conference in Kafanchan, the Vicar General of the Catholic Archdiocese of Kafanchan, Ibrahim Yakubu, said the government failed to protect locals.

Yakubu, who addressed reporters along with four other priests, said four local government areas had been attacked with 808 people killed and 1,422 houses, 16 churches, 19 shops, and one primary school destroyed.

He added: “Unfortunately, our government both at the centre and state levels have failed woefully. If anything, government has shown outright partisanship in favour of the herdsmen to the disappointment of the majority Southern Kaduna indigenes and Christians.”

The cleric, however, called for immediate end to attacks, and demanded compensation for all families that lost loved ones or property. He also called for the establishment of a commission of inquiry to investigate the causes of the crisis.

  1. This is clearly an act of war on the christian minority in that part of Kaduna state. Infact, no Nigerian regardless of his or her religion should be killed by terrorists posing as Fulani Herdsmen anywhere in our failed society. I fully agree with the statement from the Arichdiocese of Kafafanchan-Ibrahim Yakubu that both the federal and state government have failed woefully in the area of protecting innocent Nigerians and their communities from the massacre those terrorists posing as Fulani Herdsmen. Most importantly, Gov. El-Rauf of Kaduna is acting like a Jihalist or one of their sympathers instead of acting like a reputable governor of all Kaduna residents. May the souls of those killed in such terrorist attacks rest in peace. May God help us in Nigeria!

  2. As we hear crushing of Boko haram which i believed as lie, now the same fulani’s are emerging with full force as herdsmen to replace them by committing the same atrocities…PMB,i hope you are witnessing what ur brothers are doing… God is watching.

  3. There are things people do not know or rather want to accept, these guys are trained by Buhari to fight Johnathan Government if he had lost last election, now the group are turning against everyone. Governor Fayose of Ekiti state made it clear that there is no room for such act in his state,he equipped his vigilante groups and ordered them to defend themselves and the state should Fulani attack her people.

    El Rufai pass the bill against Christians, Nigeria is a total mess. the fact is our so call Journalists are all foolish and cowards, if this kind of news is posted on CNN/BBC etc and the world see it am sure something will be done, other countries like Myammar whose Muslims are being killed is everywhere in the news.

    shame on Nigeria Journalists! Journalist let the World know that Buhari tribes men are killing innocent people and he is not doing anything to stop them.

  4. These servants of bondage are gradually reducing us (Christians) in number while they are increasing and all we do is wait, watch and wail???

    For how long? Army of Jesus, I ask again: for how long shall we continue like this? If war is what they want why can‘t we give them? The Isrealites are no cowards. They fight their wars with God‘s backing.

    Gentility + Timidity

    Ruggedity & Brutality
    =
    Nonentity in Captivity.

    So we need to act and the time is NOW! Let‘s stop being cowards!!!
    I think we are underating the Favour and Power of God upon our lives, thats why we are perishing in ignorance. (Hosea 4:10).
    May our dear brothers and sisters who were killed by those demons never miss their place in Paradise. (Amen).

    Im so sad right now…

  5. That Boko Haram kingpin Anti-Christ gov called el-rufai has some hot questions to answer. This is what he has to say:
    “That the attackers were foreign fulani herdsmen who were avenging past attacks on them and their livestock.“
    RUBBISH!!!

    -The question I will like him to answer is: Which past attacks was he talking about and by whom?
    -So he had the foreknowledge of this attack on the Christian communities in his state before hand and he did nothing to stop it as the FIRST security personnel of the state?
    May the Angry Thunder of the Christian God strike him and the entire members of his damned families.
    Not excluding all those devil‘s apprentice called fulani herdsmen in the state who had carried out this attack and previous ones.

    God is watching…

  6. Really, This is barbaric. Can’t this people carry arms also to protect themselves bcos this is getting out of hand. Benue,Taraba,Adamawa,Kaduna and other states are rising daily without government solutions to it. Nigeria leaders have failed us.

  7. “Unfortunately, our government both at the centre and state levels have failed woefully. If anything, government has shown outright partisanship in favour of the herdsmen to the disappointment of the majority Southern Kaduna indigenes and Christians.”

    Indeed our government has failed to protect us….only God can.

  8. WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN FULANI HERDSMEN AND FULANI HERD? THEY ARE THE HERD THAT THEY HEAD. THEY VALUE HERD MORE THAN HUMAN. MOREOVER, THIS IS ANOTHER VERSION OF BOKO HARAM AND SHOULD BE TREATED AS SUCH.

  9. NA NIGERIAN VOTED FOR BOKO HARAM TO RULE THEM,I KNOW BUHARI IS THE FOUNDER OF BOKO HARAM,PLEASE NIGERIAN WE NEED OUR BIAFRA WE DONT WANT TO EAT,DRINK OR ASSOCIATES WITH BLOOD SUKERS

  10. It is now obvious that Governor El Rufai is behind all the killings in his state by his actions (passing of the bill against Christians)and utterances. He is aided and abetted by President Buhari who have elected to say or do nothing about the actions of his Fulani kinsmen whom he equipped to unleash mayhem if he had lost the election. This is no hidden fact. Buhari is systematically Islamizing Nigeria. He has started by compulsorily retiring all top Army officers from the South (South South, South East, South West, and Middle belt) and replacing them with officers from the North especially Sokoto, Kano and Katsina. Look at all his appountments from National security to defence to economic team all of them occupied by people from these 3 northern states. He is watering the ground for when his people will unleash total mayhem against Christians and the South. Keep watch. Upon all this there are some sell outs from the South supporting him.

  11. Those fulani herdsmen carrying out deadly attacks and sacking people from their villages are not disguised terrorist. They are real terrorist fulani men. Fulani tribe’s men have always been very violent and vicious in nature. Their attacks use to be indiscriminate and without mercy during when it break out. So don’t let us be deceived by anyone that their are some terrorist hiding under the guise of fulani herds men to unleash mayhem on nigerian citizens. This are real herdsmen who kill either because the locals didn’t allow them to graze in their locality or one of their cow is stolen or mistreated by the villagers. And they are always well armed with curbs,machetes,bows,arrows and more recently with AK 47s. We have them here in our locality. Now the question is,are this war weaponries they owned not enough to cause widespread destructions of lives and properties? Then who are those saying those causing the unspeakable act of terror in southern kaduna and some northern part of the country and some other states in the middle belt are not fulani herdsmen? Ever since fulani herdsmen had been threatened by Fayose in ekiti state with more tougher response should they carry out any attack on his people,has anyone heard of violent from them again? So what are we here saying? all this stories of terrorists posing as fulani herdsmen to kill innocent nigerians are mere hypes,misinformation and propagandas meant to stop nigerians from criticizing President Muhammadu Buhari’s fulani tribes men for their atrocities,monstrosity,barbarism,ruthlessness and bloodthirstiness. This criminal regime led by a very heartless president has encouraged all sort of manslaughters of other tribes and christians by Fulani herdsmen without a single condemnatory words other than saying nigerians have every right to move to wherever they decide to stay and live under the constitution thereby Indirectly encouraging his tribes men to kill and take over peoples lands. Nigerians really need to rise up against this great injustice. Terrible things are happening under this criminal regime. Until christians and peaceful nigerians begin to wake up from their slumbers,they will continue to be massacred
    And be sacrificed for the gods of the fulanees.

  12. THIS IS NOT THE MATTER OF GOD HELP US. GOD ONLY HELPS THOSE THAT HELP THEMSELVES. @ENDURE SAID IT BEST. WE MUST ARISE AND FIGHT THE FIGHT.

  13. It will never be well with Buhari and El-rufai for plotting against and attacking innocent people who did them no wrong. I urge the southern kaduna christians to rise up and plan a well organise retaliation on those worthless animals as a starting point.

    Otherwise, for how long shall we continue to tolerate this devils? Do they have nine lives? King David did not succumb to the intimidations and pressure of the philistines, the Amorites, the Jebusite, or the Peruzites. No! He fouth them, killed them in their numbers untill the realised that Jehovah is actually the only true God. And God was with him, even when the then buhari (King soul) was hunting him, God delivered David from the hands of the wicked.
    So why are we disappointing God today by being so cowardise today? Must we continue to wait, watch and wail untill they finish us all before we realised our folly and cowardise?
    Honestly, we are disappointing God and we are perishing in ignorance..

    All the muslims on this site, DAMN YOU ALL. May the Angry Thunder of the Christian God strike you all for keeping quiet instead of condemning this attack.
    Nobody will see any of your comment now especially that female boko haram who called herself amanda. Useless people with devilish useless religion. I wanted to say: God punish you all but realised just in time that Heaven does nor recognise you and thats more than any curse!
    U S E L E S S P E O P L E

    I take a stroll…

  14. The government are all in support of all these especially the governor Elrufai said and i quote”if you killed one fulani man that means you collected a loan”.
    “I have paid the fulani to stop the killings”They are foreigners not from Nigeria i wonder! A governor for all now is for particular ethnic group is this what our four fathers fought for?Is this how we will continue to live?The time has come Enough is Enough.My brothers use whatsoever means to protect yourself if you depend on government for security actually you will die like a cow.let the worst happen.victory Ascerta Alluta continua.

  15. THESE CHRISTIAN CLOWNS CAN EITHER PICK UP ARMS AND FIGHT BACK OR CONTINUED TO PRAY AWAY EVIL WHILE THEY ARE BEEN MURDERED……SMH..

  16. Why are southern Christians still living in north self? Pls leave their desert for them and come down here now.
