Nigeria: Muslims screaming “Allahu akbar” murder 55 Christians, burn Christian-owned homes and shops

Nigeria: Muslims screaming “Allahu akbar” murder 55 Christians, burn Christian-owned homes and shops, by Morning Star News.

Muslims attacked a market in Kaduna state, in north-central Nigeria, on Thursday (Oct. 18), killing dozens of Christians and burning a church building, sources said. …

“A Muslim raised a false alarm about a thief in the market, which caused stampede, and then other Muslims started chanting ‘Allahu Akbar [the jihadist slogan, God is Greater],’ attacking Christians, burning houses and shops belonging to Christians in the town,” area resident Kefas Mallam told Morning Star News. …

“The sad thing is that the police are aware that Muslims in Kasuwan Magani have accumulated weapons with the intent to continually attack us, but they are unable to arrest these Muslims,” [Luke Waziri, a Christian community leader] said. …

Christians make up 51.3 percent of Nigeria’s population, while Muslims living primarily in the north and middle belt account for 45 percent.

Inter-faith dialogue with the religion of peace.

Robert Spencer:

The international media is reporting this as a “clash” between Muslims and Christians. Reality is, as is so often the case, quite different.
