MIANGO, NIGERIA – Sunni Muslim Fulani Herdsmen invaded the Christian orphanage in Miango, Nigeria and burned every building. The 147 children and staff evacuated a few hours before the August 2, 2021 attack. The children were made orphans in previous attacks by Sunni Muslim terrorists such as the Boko Haram.
As Fulani herdsmen advance in the Miago and Jos areas they destroyed 500 homes, 5 churches and killed 68 Christians. Many were wounded. Nigerian law prohibits anyone from owning a firearm in Nigeria, but oddly the Fulani had weapons exactly like those of the army.
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the Christian orphanage we support in Plateau State, Nigeria was attacked and destroyed by Muslim Fulani Herdsmen during the night of August 2nd, 2021. Thankfully, all of the staff and children managed to evacuate before the attack began. The orphanage is left uninhabitable and the children remain dispersed. Please watch this video from the desk of RFC President, William J. Murray in Washington, D.C. as he explains the current situation and the huge need there is for your help.
