'Evil' and 'Satanic' - 19 Christians slaughtered by radicals during church mass

"Sixteen persons were confirmed killed, including two priests", he said of the attack, which was reportedly linked to grazing rights and diminishing fertile land space.

By mid-January this year, more than 100 deaths had been attributed to the herdsmen.

The attack came despite the outcry and condemnation that trailed the killing of two Catholic Priests and 17 worshippers at Mbalon Catholic Church in Gwer East Local government area of the state, three days earlier.

Invasion of another church by suspected herdsmen in Benue State has thrown residents of the state into another round of mourning.

He went further to say, "CAN seizes this medium to appeal to the government of President Muhammadu Buhari to mount different effective plans aimed towards disarming herdsmen across the northern states and in communities where they have been wreaking havoc across the country in national interest".

The herdsmen were said to have invaded Mbamondo clan around 12.20am and attacked some displaced persons who had taken refuge at an African Church in the area and killed seven of them.

Richard Nyajo, chairman of Logo local government, told journalists that herdsmen were responsible for the attack.

Morris, however, did not try to pin Friday night's loss on the referees, saying the Bucks won "fair and square". After the game that Middleton had on Friday night though, there should be no more confusing who is who.

Others, such as the Rev. Musa Asake, general secretary of the Christian Association of Nigeria, have accused Buhari, who is of a Fulani Muslim background, of failing to do anything to protect Christians during the deadly raids.

"Christians are to carry placards with inscriptions meant to address issues about sustained killings, attacks and destruction of their property".

"Government should be called upon to perform their constitutional responsibility of protecting citizens now".

"No excuse should be given for this wicked act again, and perpetrators must be brought to book now", he said.

He called on Christians to pray for bereaved families of those attacked by the Boko Haram terrorists, armed herdsmen, and other criminals in the past couple of months across the country.

The failure of the government to stop the killings by herdsmen is the reason they have continued to kill, he said. The statement, titled: Imminent Extinction Of Christianity & Rise Of Islamic Caliphate In Southern And Old Middle-Belt Nigeria & Lessons From Global Killing Of 270m Christians & Ors Since 622AD By Political Islam, also catalogued the killing in the name of Islam around the world dated back to 622 AD or past 1400yrs.
