On 12 March at about 7:30 pm, the Fulani men entered a small village in Kagoro and fired indiscriminately at a woman named Lydia and a 1-year-old named Confidence.
Lydia suffered gunshot wounds to her back, right arm and abdomen, while Confidence was struck in both feet and on her hip.
Williams Aluwong Jonathan, his wife and their 3-month-old baby were outside their home when the Fulani began shooting. His wife was shot to death as she ran for the house with their baby. Williams was shot 15 times in the arm but was able to protect their baby from harm. “Please pray for them, thanking God that they survived and also for quick healing physically, emotionally and spiritually,” a VOM contact asked.
