I know the Bible says to turn the other cheek but at some point you need to fight back.
JOS, Nigeria (Reuters) — Attackers armed with guns and machetes killed six people in two separate raids on central Nigerian villages late on Sunday, in the latest act of sectarian violence that has troubled Plateau state for months.
The attacks took place when youths, suspected by police to be Muslims, stormed two Christian villages in the outskirts of Plateau’s capital Jos, where religious and ethnic clashes have killed more than 200 people since December.
“At about 2100 (2000 GMT) armed persons invaded Kai village near Kura Falls and killed five people . . . similarly at the same time Gohog village was also invaded, leaving one dead and 37 cattle rustled,” assistant superintendent Apev Jacob said.
There have been frequent clashes between Christian and Muslim mobs in villages around Jos since a series of bombs were detonated during Christmas Eve celebrations in December, killing scores of people.
