Islamists stormed a factory in the Kano region of Nigeria and slaughtered thirteen Christians for not participating in Muslim prayer. Eight Christians were killed for refusing to recant their Christian faith in Jesus Christ.
PM News Wire reported, via Religion of Peace:
The Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN has urged the authorities to probe the gruesome killing of 13 factory workers identified as Christians at Sheka, Sharada Phase 111 in Kumbotso Local Government Area of Kano, by gunmen suspected to be Boko Haram members.
Although CAN has started its own probe of the killings, it wants the police to unravel what really happened.
Reports said terrorists stormed the residence of the factory workers at the weekend and killed all the men except, sparing the women and children..
“The occupants of that compound are mostly factory workers, and they are Christians. The gun men who came in taxi asked if they were not observing the evening Muslim prayers; and when they confirmed their victims were Christians, they started killing them sparing only the female and children.
“After the attack, I counted at least, 13 dead bodies murdered in gruesome manner. Security agencies later came and evacuated them, while the very few of them who survived the attack fled the area and vowed never to return,” said a resident of the area.
Bishop Ransom Bello, CAN chairman in Kano has been in a very bad mood, not only because of the killings but what he described as the non-challant attitude of Kano state government over the incident.
