Jihadis burn Christian Pastor and his family alive in Nigeria

A disturbing video has surfaced showing the heart-wrenching moment a pastor cried bitterly for help as jihadis burned his village down to the ground.

The pastor was overwhelmed with emotions as he explained his situation and that of his people.

In the video, the elderly clergyman wept as he called on America, the international community, lawmakers and others to come to their aid as Muslim extremists destroyed lives in a matter of minutes.

Eight people, including a pastor, his wife and three children, were killed. Around 95 homes were burned to the ground.

Breitbart.com reports: In the village of Abonong in Plateau State, the Islamic raiders, armed with machetes and AK47 rifles, looted and destroyed 95 houses, along with farmland and three churches. They killed Pastor Adamu Gyang Wurim and his family by setting fire to their house while they were inside and shot the pastor’s wife in the bathroom. The assailants killed two other villagers as well, wounding several others.

The attack, which began Tuesday evening around 8:00 p.m., lasted over four hours before security personnel finally arrived on the scene. By then the attackers had razed much of the villages of Abonong and Ziyat, and stolen valuables including electronics, mattresses, food, and livestock.

The incident occurred just 24 hours after a two-day peace summit in Jos organized by the Christian Association of Nigeria with the theme, “Sustainable peace and security in Northern Nigeria as a panacea for development.”

A local lawyer, Dalyop Solomon Mwantiri, spoke with one of the three surviving children of the pastor, who was away at the University of Jos at the time of the attack and learned of it on Facebook.

“When I called a friend to find out about the situation, the report I received was very devastating,” the young man said. “I couldn’t believe that all my family members have been engulfed in the pogrom. On reaching home, I saw my daddy and younger ones burnt beyond recognition.”

“The three of us left don’t know what to do, especially now that we are still students who have nothing to hold on [to],” he said.

One witness, Mr. Gwom Pam Dusu, who works at a Roman Catholic Church in the area, said that local security had received information about an impending attack planned by Fulani herdsmen and their hired mercenaries but failed to act.

Despite the information, “security personnel stationed at Bek of Foron District didn’t do anything to avert the terror attacks,” Mr. Gwom claimed.

Nathan Johnson, the regional manager for Africa of International Christian Concern, expressed astonishment over the government’s inaction in an area of continued inter-religious strife.

“The fact that the government allows the continued destruction and killing of its villages and citizens shows a lack of care or ability,” Mr. Johnson said. “If this continues, there will have to be international intervention or else Nigeria may devolve into a major civil war.”

A member of the House of Representatives, Istifanus Gyang, concurred in a statement accusing the federal government of complicity following the renewed attacks which came about two months after the slaughter of over 200 Christians by Fulani herdsmen.

“These attacks are coming at a time when the people are yet to recover from the massacre of over 200 persons in the same Barkin Ladi LGA with thousands of the displaced victims still languishing in Internally Displaced Persons camps,” Mr. Gyang said.

“The unfortunate thing is that the perpetrators of these attacks continue to execute their agenda with reckless abandon without an appropriate response by government!” he said.


  1. Church and State should never be Wed No man can serve two masters .Religion should never allow itself to become politicized and to act as representatives of any government of especially Democrats , which is the anti Christ itself ..The only democratic decision exhibited in the Bible is the casting of votes to decide if Jesus or Barabbas should be set free or murdered.God reveals that His beleivers Love no one before Him.Worship no one else, pay homage to no others. When the Government took control over “training” priests and pastors the Church became utterly corrupted from within.

  2. I thought we were evil, white, racist devils, why would an African call upon Americans to help, why not the South African government?

  3. Mooslims are murderers, nothing new or newsworthy here. When people reverse the trend and give the mooslims there just desserts then you will have news worth printing.

  4. Just blacks killing blacks its what they do, makes no difference which god they worship, let them get on with it.
