Death as Punishment "for Disbelief": Extremist Persecution of Christians, February 2018
The jihadi assault on, and massacre of, Christians continued unabated throughout the Muslim word. According to one report titled, "Armed gangs WIPE OUT 15 villages in mass Christian slaughter in Nigeria," several Islamic terrorists "stormed through 15 villages to massacre Christians and destroy their churches in a violent crackdown against the religion.... Dozens of people have been killed after the gangs ransacked towns and villages to clear them of all aspects of the Christian faith. Houses belonging to believers have also been razed with authorities doing little to help..." According to a human rights activist, "One attack took place in broad daylight, as people were about to go to church. The assailants chased and killed the villagers and burned down nine churches and many more houses."
