NIGERIA: REPEATED ATTACKS TARGET CHRISTIANS IN TARABA STATE

More than 76 Christians have been killed over the past five months in Taraba State, in north-east Nigeria, according to a report by Morning Star News.
Islamist mercenaries and ethnic Fulani herdsmen have launched attacks on eight towns and villages in the state. A local Christian leader described the violence as “genocide”.
In July, the Christian Reformed Church of Nigeria (CRCN) produced a communiqué on the dire situation in Taraba state, in which it accused the state government of remaining silent and of not protecting the Christian population. The communiqué stated that the official silence on the crisis in the area amounts to a deliberate extermination of Christians.
