“Suspected Islamic Fulani Militants Kill 5 Christians,” International Christian Concern, June 21, 2024:

6/21/2024 Nigeria (International Christian Concern) — An attack on Monday, June 17, resulted in the deaths of five Christians in Ewehko Village, also known as Anguwan Paul, located in the Maro Ward of Kajuru county.

The assailants, suspected militant Fulani Muslims, stormed the village with AK-47s and machetes shouting, “Allah Akbar” or “Allah is Great,” at about 2:15 p.m. as a group of Christians conducted a prayer meeting for the community. Locals told an International Christian Concern (ICC) staffer that five people were killed, including an officer at the door of the church.

Eyewitnesses reported that the terrorists opened fire indiscriminately, killing four men and one woman. In addition to the loss of life, several motorcycles were set ablaze during the attack….

“We received an early warning to leave the community, and we couldn’t believe it, thinking it was just a rumor,” said Angwan Magani, a leader of the Evangelical Church Winning ALL (ECWA). “Despite not believing, we told the security, but they refused to protect us because we are Christians.”
