Christian Vs Muslim Clash Killed 20 In Taraba State

May 4, 2013 – Religious Violence: Christian Vs Muslim Clash Killed 20 In Taraba State

According to an anonymous source, over 20 people were killed on Friday during a violent fight between Christian and Muslim mob in Taraba state.

“We have recovered 20 bodies from the violence so far,” the source said Saturday, adding that the unrest had occurred in the town of Wukari, some 200 kilometres (125 miles) from the state capital Jalingo.

“We are still going round the town in search of more bodies,” he said on condition of anonymity because he was not authorised to speak to the media about death tolls.

Authorities have imposed a curfew in the area following the bloody clashes, officials said.

Local residents said Friday’s violence erupted when the funeral procession of a traditional chief from the predominantly Christian Jukun ethnic group marched through a Muslim neighbourhood chanting slogans, which Muslims viewed as an act of provocation.

Tensions have been on the rise in the mostly Christian town of Wukari since February, when a dispute over the use of a football pitch between Muslim and Christian soccer teams set off sectarian riots that claimed several lives.

    The prblm u Christians hav is ignorance, if there is killing in d north does dat mean Islam is violent? Is d north d only part of Nigeria dat practice Islam? Wy is there no violence in d west? Did ur bible teach u to condem another religion? If u are wise enough u go read nd understand d Quran b4 u conclude on d ***** u hear.

      Henry or Chickenry, what Ameena is actually trying to let u knw is you are being decieved by the world leaders in believing dat d Muslims r terrorist so as for you not to really c and knw wat dey r up to, and i mean d whole leaders of the world power holders. If you believe otherwise….

    Ameena permit me to said that best on my perception, islam isn’t quiet the problem but hausa/fulani culture is the major problem. As you rightly said, it is not only north that has muslims but yet it is only the northern muslims that causes problems and feasibly retarding the economic growth of this country. If you people can atleast try to practise your religion very well without easily getting irritated by any meaningless provocation, I believe we will achieve a long lasting peace in this confused country.

      May 7, 2013 at 11:15 AM

      You r rght Livingston. I agree wit u a 100%. If we the Muslims will live according to Islam, we wont need to cal people to our religion; they will b pouring in, becouse it has described all aspects of living and transactions between humanity peacefully. But then, Muslims are mostly Hausa/Fulani, and they are the predominant Northerners. So if u go to Rome…..

    Ameena you shot up, muslims started this killing in Naija. they called themselves bokoaram, real and truthful muslims conderm their actions and not support them. Islam did not encourage shedding blood, there can never be direct blood shed in the west cos won aje iyan nwon nisu. southerners leave the North for them oh.

    The truth is in all religious wars nigeria has ever experienced the sensless muslims are always d first to kill becos of the indoctrination they get from the mosques and quran. I just pray nigeria divides so we xtians can leave in peace in the southern nigeria so we can leave them in the north with their wickedness

      Xactly Dennis or rather, DEMISE. This country cannot live with dis type of wahala where you xtains follow only wat your pastors tells you in your churches, but you r never allowed to read the Bible on your own talkless of reading The Holy Quran. So I am wit you. I hope and pray in earnest dat d country b divided in the Name of Allah. Ameen.

    Ameena, I don’t think i have seen where u condemned the actions of boko haram . My sister if u’re wise distance yourself from Islamic. They don’t know whom they follow Allah,mohammed or do they copy jewish culture and twist it. I know they are muslims who love God and I pray that God show them a way to Him . And my sister do you know that muslim believe that Jesus and Mary are the most Holy people ever lived, and if they think so, why wouldn’t they try to listen to them and be like them.

    @Ameena d west I.e d yorubas r freestyle wen it comes to islam even an average hausa doesn’t see a yoruba man as a true muslim and no 4gt yorubas love life and d killing is synonymous to the muslim hausas and fulanis.their problem is lack of education and information they dnt verify wateva they hear they believe straight up.pls they r nt nigerians so they shuld vacate frm dis country both dem and their leaders.

    Ameena, why the muslims killing christians does not exist in other region, is bcos. other region is predominated by the christians and they are peace loving ppl who have value for lives, but reverse is the case in the northern nigerian, muslims have no value for life, they blieve in killing and sloutering pple. it makes me to conclude that islams is a devilish religion, bcos. our God, the Living God who created the Heaven and Earth is against taking lives, and any religion that indulge in such is satanic. infact i come to believe the book i read sometimes ago titled “who is this allah” in it is said that all muslims will go to hell. it was written by a muslim man, a son of an emir who has been persecuting the christians, in one of his mission to kill christians worshiping in the church, met with the Lord Jesus Christ who spoke arabic to him asking why he was persecuting is children, and ask him to repent, from that moment he gave his life to Jesus Christ and began preaching the gospel of Chist, he faced a lot of persecutions from his fellow muslims, they always wanted to kill him, but they could not. muslims, pls. repent and stop taking innocent lives bcos you will be demanded of it on that faithfull day. those of your brothers that die taking innocent lives in the name of allah, they are in hell now.

      We the Muslim follow the teachings of the Bible more than the Christians.Because their in the Bible it is said by prophet Isa(Jesus)that i can’t tell you about everything but he the spirit of truth to come shall guide you.So if Christianity means following the teachings of Jesus then we are the Muslims are more Christian than the Christians because we follow the teachings of prophet Isa(Jesus).So who is the spirit of truth?No one but prophet Muhammad(saw).We should go back to our Scriptures.

  32. Benklef

    Islam they say to those who do not know ( even to the ignorant Muslims) that its means ” peace” LIARS… Islam simply means submission ( to the will of Allah (S.W.T) & the the prophet Mohammad (S.A.W) pbuh (as the often say). My point is any one according to the teachings of the prophet who does not conform with the will of Allah is an EMNEMY (Christians & Jews)
    In one Hadith the prophet was quoted saying “I am the prophet that laughs when killing my enemy”
    Islam is a caustic blend of paganism & twisted bible stories.
    In the Qur’an one can find unbridle raw evil such as
    *Truly, Allah Loves those who fight
    *Fight & slay those who don’t convert wherever you find them.
    *Those who reject Islam are the vilest of creatures & thus deserve no mercy.
    *Fight them until Islam reign supreme.
    I can go on & on infact I discover there are about 123 verses in the noble Qur’an that spoke about killing & fight. In Afghanistan schools they teach the pupils the slogan ‘ Islam will destroy all other religion through the Islamic jihad’
    Fellow Christians I urge you all to study the bible daily & as well what other religion say about yours because a close observation has shown that Satan has taken pains to ensure that Muhammad and his Qur’an defiantly stand against the true status of JESUS and the new testament. In facts a true Muslim doesn’t believe that Jesus died on the cross, that alone make Islam DEMONIC.
    Now, this is the bombshell; if any Muslim can oppose this I stand corrected. Christian brethren this is why a Muslim kills without thinking twice about what the true God expect of him. In surah 9:29 the Qur’an says ” fight against such of those who have been given the scripture ( Christians) as believe not in Allah nor the last day, & forbid not that which Allan hath forbidden by his messenger & follow not the religion of truth, until they pay the tribute readily.
    Before I take a bow, in another verse in the Quran which is misleading the Muslims is this I quote
    “Mohamed is the apostle of Allah- those who follow him are merciful to another but ruthless to unbelievers” surah 48:29.
    Muslim brethren I only which to use this medium to decipher between the bible & Qur’an. all the above mention is contrary to what the bible tells us in facts the bible says we should love our enemies and pray for them & to you who myade mention of crusaders, is Mohamed not a crusader? Mohammad led 27 military campaigns against villages & planned 38 others. Again what boko Haram are doing today what name can you give it? I know the mallam will say jihad & so what is jihad & how those it differ from crusade?
    Assalamu Alaikum!

      June 30, 2017 at 7:27 AM

      You said Jihad means Muslims killing Christian,but Boko haram are killing Muslim is that also Jihad to you.For I400 years Quran has never been changed can you tell me how many versions of Bible do you have.You can’t be a muslim until you believe in Prophet Isa(Jesus).we believe in JESUS AND we follow his teachings.Because Jesus himself has told you about the coming of Prophet Muhammad(saw).so tell me why don’t you obey his teachings.

    that is perfect all has is pros and cons ,
    i can see from the statement of you all that everyone wants to claim to be the best and and force others to believe on his religion and that was exactly where the problems lie .fellow nigerians let us show love and peace to one another that was how you can show that you religion is good if not you will all be practising religion and not god .
    you can all see the result in our belove nation nigeria we are only religios but not godly

    dear all, having gone through all the comments. I will like to ask some questions
    where is our conscience?
    can we fight for God?
    what is the gain in taking the life of your brother or sister?
    are we really serving God or the devil?
    the Bible says thou shall not kill?
    I strongly belief Qur’an says the same thing.
    where then are we getting our teachings from.
    its high time we wake up from our sleep and serve God in truth and sincerity.
    everybody will account for his or her life to God on the last day whether Christian or Muslims.
    the constitution of this country says freedom of worship. why then are some people forcing others to their religion.
    lets learn to tolerate each other.
    please we need to pray for this country.
    war is not good.
    lets endeavor to live at peace with each other.

    Hmmmmmmmmmmnnnnnnnnnnnnn!!! Many pple have given intelligent, revealing and highly enlightening comments. I respect the comment of benklef, adex and some other brilliant guys above. My submission is that we shd all try to be conscientious in whatever we do. We all believe that God created us and He created us for a purpose[ to serve Him].So, if anyone decides not to serve Him but serves another god, then leave the person for God to deal with. The greater fights for the lesser, God is greater than anyone on earth, so leave the fight for God to fight, dont fight for God!Yours is to show the way and if the person does not want to follow, then leave him/her, dont kill! Why would a religion encourage pple to kill fellow human beings like goats or dog? Is that not even morally wrong?
    I studied the two books and I know the truth and I’m sure many pretenders above do know the truth too. Only that they only allowed the devil to harden their hearts unto destruction.
    Look at the warring nations all over the world, which religion do they practice? Have you ever sat down and think about the number of lives that we’re loosing unnecessarily daily? If any of them were to be your father, mother, brother or sister, how would you feel? Some politicians have their hands in the bloodshed and I’m sure they will not go unpunished, no matter how long it takes!
    Fellow Nigerians! The resources needed for building this nation and taking it to the pedestrian of economic vibrancy and glowing are been wasted anyhow. Remember, their spirit and blood shall avenge their untimely death either they like it or not.
    In closing,my message to this pple: Jesus said ‘the devil comes to kill, to steal and destroy but I’m come so that they might have life and have it more abundantly’ He said, ‘I’m the way , the truth and the life; no man comes unto the Father except by me’!Jesus loves you, will you accept Him today? God bless you.
