      NIGERIA One Dead, 60 Injured in Muslim Attacks on Christians
      VOM Sources

      On February 2, one Christian was killed, 60 others injured,
      and churches, businesses and homes set on fire, in the latest
      Muslim attacks on Christians in Bauchi state, Nigeria.
      According to The Voice of the Martyrs contacts in Nigeria,
      "One Christian man was killed, over 60 people were seriously
      injured and five churches were damaged." This latest attack
      took place after two friends, a Christian lady and a Muslim
      man, had a disagreement. VOM contacts report, "These two
      were said to be friends of some sort until they had a
      disagreement on February 1. The Muslim man claimed that
      the Christian lady made some blasphemous utterances against
      the Prophet Muhammad. They were said to have parted ways that
      day without much trouble, but with a threat from the man that
      he would deal with the lady in his own way." VOM contacts
      added that the following day the Muslim man ganged up with
      Muslim extremists and started searching for the lady. "The
      lady was alerted of the attack and ran to the police station.
      The gang traced her to the police station and insisted the
      police release her. When the police did not release her,
      the attackers set the police station on fire. After the
      lady and the police escaped, the Muslim extremists attacked
      Christian homes, churches and shops," VOM contacts said.
      Believers who lived in the damaged and destroyed homes have
      not returned because of fear they might be attacked again.
      Pray for Christians in this state. Ask God to comfort the
      family of the deceased and those injured. Pray these
      believers will be encouraged to remain faithful in their
      walk with the Lord. Psalm 23:3-5
