|We share the image below and news with you as a reminder of the brutal reality our brothers and sisters are walking through. On any given day, armed extremists can storm into a village and kill—leaving surviving Christians mutilated and traumatized. We also share this because as the Body of Christ, we are called to pray for and with one another—pushing back the darkness. Please pray with us for these victims, the tiny village of Kalagari and other villages susceptible to the brutality of Islamic extremist groups like an extremist group that is located primarily in Northern Nigeria.
Sun had set and families in the tiny village of Kalagari in northern Camaroon were ending their day when an extremist group that is located primarily in Northern Nigeria militants reportedly stormed the area—the second an extremist group that is located primarily in Northern Nigeria attack the village of less than 150 Africans has faced in less than a week.
During the attack, militants chased away members of the village’s vigilante group. Then they turned their attention to the women in the village, taking eight hostage. Before releasing some of them (it’s not clear if all have been released), an extremist group that is located primarily in Northern Nigeria militants barbarically cut off the ears of their captives. The women are currently receiving medical care.
