Nigeria: Muslims murder 20 Christians, burn down 10 churches
The Rt. Rev. Stephen Dami Mamza, the Catholic bishop of the Yola Diocese, stated: “It is on record that less than one week ago, no fewer than 20 innocent Christian farmers were killed in separate attacks in and around Tambo. Luru village in particular saw its worst days when herdsmen wielding sophisticated firearms stormed the area, killing 15 people. Within the period under review, not less than 10 churches were burnt down, and in some instances, worshippers were killed.”
Mamza was apparently careful not to name the persecutors. After all, he doesn’t want to get called on the carpet by Pope Francis, who insists that “authentic Islam and the proper reading of the Koran are opposed to every form of violence.” In line with this preposterous and insulting nonsense, descriptions of the Muslim persecution of Christians by Catholics generally omit any characterization of the persecutors. They, above all, must not be offended.
“Pastor, Other Christians Slain in Herdsmen Revenge Attacks in Northeast Nigeria,” Morning Star News, March 2, 2018:
Nigeria (Morning Star News) – Armed Muslim Fulani herdsmen in northeast Nigeria on Tuesday (Feb. 27) killed a pastor and 19 other Christians in apparent retaliation for attacks by ethnic Bachama militia on Fulani families, sources said.
The Rev. Haruna Enoch was killed along with the others in herdsmen attacks on four predominantly Christian areas in the Numan and Demsa areas of Adamawa state, area residents said.
The killings reportedly came in retaliation for an unspecified attack on Fulani families by young men from the predominantly Christian Bachama tribe who have formed militias in response to violence by Islamic extremist group Boko Haram and heavily-armed Muslim Fulani herdsmen. Tit-for-tat violence between Fulani herdsmen and Bachama militia in recent months has resulted in scores of killings, including women and children.
The anti-Christian dimension of the tribal conflict is prominent in Adamawa state as it is in tribal conflicts in other parts of Nigeria, according to rights groups and Christian leaders.
Sam Zadock, spokesperson for the People’s Democratic Party and a member of the Lutheran Church of Christ in Nigeria (LCCN), was among those slain in an ambush by the herdsmen this week, area residents told Morning Star News. Area resident Margaret Inusa Habu said in a text message that Zadock was stricken with machete blows.
The names of the remaining Christians were not readily available, but local Christians told Morning Star News that they were members of either the LCCN or the Roman Catholic Church. They said an attack on Gwamba village began at about 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday (Feb. 27)….
After troops deployed in the Numan area later captured six of the assailants and killed 10 other herdsmen in a firefight at Gwamba village, the army reportedly recovered from the herdsmen an AK-47 rifle, ammunition, a locally made rifle with 25 cartridges, a cutlass, looted clothes and a motorcycle.
In January the chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Adamawa State Chapter, spoke out against attacks by the herdsmen. The Rt. Rev. Stephen Dami Mamza, 49-year-old Catholic bishop of the Yola Diocese, accused the Muslim-controlled state government of supporting armed Fulani herdsmen.
“It is on record that less than one week ago, no fewer than 20 innocent Christian farmers were killed in separate attacks in and around Tambo,” Mamza said at a Jan. 10 press conference in Yola, the state capital. “Luru village in particular saw its worst days when herdsmen wielding sophisticated firearms stormed the area, killing 15 people. Within the period under review, not less than 10 churches were burnt down, and in some instances, worshippers were killed.”
He cautioned the Adamawa government to warn its officials to avoid unwise statements during and after attacks, as “the secretary to the Adamawa state government has propounded a new firearms narrative which seeks to justify the use of firearms by Fulani in the country.”
“This is dangerous and reprehensible, as the law of the country does not allow any civilian the possession of illegal firearms, whether herdsmen or farmers,” Mamza said. “CAN wishes to state in unequivocal terms that violent elements are easily emboldened and fueled to terror killings by such reckless and unguarded utterances.”…
Baba umenipa funguo muhimu katika Mathayo 16:19 za kufunga na kufungua. Ninatumia funguo hizo kufunga na kufungua, kuvunja na kubamiza kila kitu ambacho kinazuia kutimizwa kwa mipango yako kamili katika maisha yangu. Ninaamuru na kutangaza kwamba kila mnyororo, kamba, gereza, pingu kwamba zimefunguliwa, zimekatwa, na kuondolewa kutoka kwenye maisha yangu katika jina la Yesu.
Baba, Bwana Nakushukuru, kwamba wewe pekee ndiye hakimu wa maisha yetu, kwa mujibu wa Yeremia 17:9-10 Moyo huwa mdanganyifu kuliko vitu vyote, una ugonjwa wa kufisha; nani awezaye kuujua? Mimi, Bwana, nauchunguza moyo, navijaribu viuno, hata kumpa kila mtu kiasi cha njia zake, kiasi cha matunda ya matendo yake.
Baba naomba katika jina la Yesu, kwa mujibu wa Zaburi 22:19 Nawe, Bwana, usiwe mbali, Ee Nguvu zangu, fanya haraka kunisaidia. Baba naomba kwamba utusaidie, na kutupa uvumilivu wa kusubiri mapenzi yako kutimizwa.
Baba katika jina la Yesu, neno lako liniasema katika Isa 41:10-12 usiogope, kwa maana mimi ni …
Kuna watu wanapitia mateso mengi sana, wengine wamefungwa katika vifungo bila wao kujijuwa basi chukua muongozo huu utakusaidia au itasaidia familia yako.
Biblia inapozungumza habari ya watu waliofungwa wapate kufunguliwa, hii ina maana ya kuwa kuna watu wamefungwa chini ya utawala wa nguvu za giza katika ulimwengu wa Roho. Watu hawa wamefungwa kwenye magereza na Ibilisi.
Tutambue ya kuwa Yesu aliposema amekuja kutuokoa hii inamaanisha kwamba kuna mahali ambako tusingeweza kujikwamua wenyewe bila nguvu yake yeye mwenywe kuingia kati yetu.
MAOMBI YA KUMTEKETEZA SHETANI:
Baba katika Jina la Yesu:
1. Ninayaharibu na kuyateketeza mamlaka yote aliyopewa shetani na mababu/ mababa, ndugu zangu katika Jina la Yesu. 2. Nina zilaani na kuziteketeza kwa damu ya Yesu roho zote zinazoendelea kutilia mkazo hayo maagano katika maisha yangu na naziteketeza na kuzivunavunja kwa Jina la Yesu. 3. Kitu chochote kilichoingizwa kwenye maisha yangu,kwa mkono wa kipepo, au majini ninakiamuru kiachie kwa JIna …
Adui anakuja kuiba, kuua na kuharibu kila kitu chetu, ni lazima kuwa tayari kupambana na maadui, tujue silaha zetu, na kutumia neno la Mungu. Ni lazima kujifunza neno la Mungu na kulitumia katika maisha yetu ya kila siku.
Baba neno lako katika Yer 23:29 linasema “Je! Neno langu si kama moto? Asema Bwana; na kama nyundo ivunjayo mawe vipande vipande? ”Nasimama sawa sawa na neno lako, na kuvunja vipande vipande kila mipango ya kishetani, miradi na kazi mbaya za adui, katika pepo nne za dunia, katika jina la Yesu.
Baba neno katika Waebrania 4:12 "linasema “Maana Neno la Mungu li hai, tena lina nguvu, tena lina ukali kuliko upanga uwao wote ukatao kuwili. Nachukua mamlaka ya neno lako ambalo ni upanga na kugawanya nafsi na roho, na viungo na mafuta yaliyomo ndani ya kila nguvu za uchawi, kila enzi, falme, mamlaka, wakuu wa giza, mapepo wabaya katika ulimwengu wa roho, mishale ya moto ya adui, maadui wa siri, maadui wanaojulikana, mapepo ya utambuzi, maadui wa ndani, na mamlaka zingi…
Twakusalimu kwa mara ingine katika jina tukufu na takatifu la Yesu Kristo Bwana wetu. Twazidi pia kukushukuru kwa ajili yakuyafuata mafundisho haya ya Biblia Takatifu. Twaamini mada ile ile lakini ya tatu kuhusu imani ya kiislamu itakusaidia ukiwa mkristo wa kweli kutoishiriki mihadhara ya ubishi kati ya waislamu na wakristo. Sababu ya pili, ni kwako ndugu na dada ambaye ungali bado katika upotevu wauislamu bila yako kujuwa ukweli kwa wazi.
Katika zile sababu zaidi ya 25 zinazotudhihirishia uongo na upotevu wa dini ya uislamu tumetamani kuchimbua «Utume na unabii wa nabii Muhammad s.a.w»
Tunazo sababu zaidi ya mia (100) kuwauliza waislamu na kitabu chao qura'n swali tulilolitaja hapo juu na maswali mengine kuhusu UISLAMU na Qura'n! na moja ya hayo maswali ni sababu kitabu chao yaani Qur’ani kinatutaka sisi wakristo kusilimu, lakini kabla tusilimu nakuingia dini ya uislamu ni sherti tumjuwe vyema vilivyo huyu nabii sababu Yesu Kristo anatuonya kwamba manabii wengi wa uongo watatoke…
