Two Christians were murdered in northern Nigeria after a Jihadist sheik called for violent jihad during his broadcasts on local television. One man was killed with a sword and the other was bludgeoned to death.
Elder Saidu Dogo, secretary of the northern Nigeria chapter of the
Christian Association of Nigeria, told Compass that Islamic leader
Sheik Gumi had urged Muslims to wage jihad against Christians in
televised broadcasts during the Islamic month-long observance of
Ramadan. “He specifically called for a jihad,” Dogo told Compass, “and
that when they go killing they should not kill the elderly people,
because the elderly have spent their years already, but that Muslims
should kill young Christians.”
