In a recent series of attacks over the course of three days, 26 Christians have been killed or kidnapped in Nigeria.

Fulani Muslim militants were behind the north-central Nigeria attacks, CBN News reports.

The attacks occurred April 23 to 25. More than 1,000 people were driven from their homes during raids on five villages in the Kaduna state.

13 Christians were killed in the attacks. 13 more believers have been kidnapped.


Binniyat has asked both federal and state governments to rescue the believers who were kidnapped and to take action against their attackers.


Christian Solidarity International issued a genocide warning for Nigeria earlier this year, asking the United Nations Security Council to take action against the "rising tide of violence directed against Nigerian Christians and others classified as 'infidels' by Islamist militants."
