Makurdi, Nigeria, Jan 20, 2023 / 18:15 pm At least 11 people, most of them Catholics, were killed Jan. 19 when alleged Fulani herdsmen attacked a village near a refugee camp in Nigeria’s Makurdi Diocese, a diocesan official has reported.
In an interview with ACI Africa, CNA’s sister news partner, Father Moses Aondover Iorapuu, the diocese’s vicar general, recounted the “horrifying” persecution that Catholics were subjected to during the attack.
“The images of the attack are horrifying, and I keep saying that not even ISIS is capable of such brutality,” he said. “After killing, these guys decapitated some and took the parts away as proof to whoever is the sponsor.”
Aondover said the attacks took place Thursday about 9 p.m. in a village near Makurdi, the Benue State capital, where there is a displaced persons camp.
“As of this evening 11 people were killed, including women and children, and many with life-threatening wounds in the hospital,” he reported.
“Almost all the victims” of the attack were Catholics, he said, adding: “The attackers, according to the survivors, were Fulani, who occupied some of the villages they had abandoned in earlier raids.”
Aondover criticized the delayed response from security agents, saying: “The response from the police and the military as always: normal late arrival at the scene, and the attackers remain unidentified.”

Nigeria needs a 2nd Amendment.
Muzzies are demons, not human beings. ‘Nuff said.
Turn your plowshares into swords.
Fulani and other Muslim terrorists have been killing Catholic Nigerians for years, most noticiably in the past 10 years.
They are rarely caught. They are never stopped.
It’s almost as though the Nigerian Government allows a certain number of innocent people to be ‘culled’ throughout the year.
So when is the pope going to send in the troops!
Call them Ukranians and send 500 billion in tanks.
