Christian women-weeping nigeriaOfficials say Fulani Muslim herders attacked three Christian villages and killed more than 100 civilians. Hundreds of thatched-roof huts were set ablaze.

Thousands have been killed in recent years in competition for land and water between mainly Muslim Fulani herdsmen and Christian farmers across Nigeria’s Middle Belt. More than 100 people were killed in similar attacks in neighboring Katsina state last week.

Chenshyi village chief Nuhu Moses said Sunday that gunmen killed more than 50 people including the pastor’s wife and children. He said the entire village in the southern part of Kaduna state was destroyed.

Local government acting chairman Daniel Anyip said about 100 people were killed in attacks on three villages Friday night.

The Southern Kaduna Indigenes Progressive Forum blamed the government for failing to take action.

    ‘Muslim herders’…. ‘…entire village was destroyed.’
    What the hell were they herding? Elephants? One assumes that tribe doesn’t like to farm.

    Sounds like fighting over resources and not religion.

      No, for me, it looks rather like a deja-vu for the last 1,400 years all over the world. If the other party (the victims in this situation) were muslims, the attackers would not have killed them “over resources”.

        I understand, thats because you see the world through “stained glass” tinted sunglasses. Maybe you should do a little more research about the borem and fulani tribes. They fight each other often. Its mostly over resources.

          Since the election of 2011 they have been doing this not over resources alone. The story is bigger than resources.
