Jihadist Fulani Kidnap Three Christians, Kill Church Elder

According to The Morning Star News, Fulani herdsmen shot and killed 65-year-old Mati Sani, a lay-leader of Evangelical Church Winning All (ECWA) and abducted three Christians while hospitalizing another. The attack occurred in Kankara County, Katsina state, in the early morning hours of February 16th.

Mati Sani’s son, Reverend Ali Mati, was paraphrased in a Morning Star News report: “’Fulani Bandits’ also abducted Ibrahim Lawal, Mamar Rahila and Hafsat Yusuf, besides shooting and wounding Danjuma Sani Mati, who was receiving treatment at the Federal Medical Center in the city of Katsina. The victims are all Christians who are related to each other” said Mati.

This past December, Kankara County was also attacked by Fulani militant herdsmen when students at the Government Secondary School were abducted, only to be released after a government paid ransom.
