Fulani militants have continued their killing spree in north and central Nigeria with a brutal attack on a Baptist village in Kaduna last Tuesday night.

Seventeen people died in a midnight raid on Gonan Rogo village, near Makyali – including a married couple and their three children.

Villagers were asleep when Fulani set upon them with guns and knives. Seven children were among the dead. Six people were injured, including a baby whose skull was penetrated by a bullet that killed her mother.

The attackers met with no resistance, despite the presence of a military checkpoint nearby.
