nigeriaABUJA, NIGERIA (Worthy News)– Herdsmen killed 15 Christians in Nigeria’s Kaduna state early Saturday morning when Fulani Muslims assaulted the Christian village of Zangang.

They were killing the villagers and burning down houses, the Rev. Yakubu Gandu Nkut told Morning Star News.

The Fulani Muslims laid siege to the village while attacking Christians with guns and burning down their houses, Nkut said.

Nkut, pastor of an Evangelical Church in Zankan, said the gunmen also had machetes and knives.

Kumai Badu, chairman of the Kaura Local Government Council, told Morning Star News by phone that in addition to the 15 Christians killed, others were wounded and hundreds more displaced.

The attack was the third time this year that Muslim herdsmen had attacked Christians and destroyed their property in Zangang village.

Christians make up just more than half of Nigeria’s 158 million while Muslims account for 45 percent, according to Operation World.
