Christian Orphanage Invaded and Destroyed in Nigeria

Sunni Muslim Fulani Herdsmen invaded the Christian orphanage in Miango, Nigeria and burned every building. The 147 children and staff evacuated a few hours before the August 2 attack. The children were made orphans in previous attacks by Sunni Muslim terrorists such as the Boko Haram.

As Fulani herdsmen advance in the Miago and Jos areas they destroyed 500 homes, five churches and killed 68 Christians. Many were wounded. Nigerian law prohibits anyone from owning a firearm in Nigeria, but oddly the Fulani had weapons exactly like those of the army.

Please pray for our brothers and sisters in Christ.
