Tribal Violence in Nigeria

July 21, 2011

“The day was very hectic as we had to run to and fro to rescue many women and children who are the most affected and traumatized victims of the ethnic violence in Taraba State. This is especially sad since MCM has been having unprecedented success planting churches among both the Kona and the Mumuye tribes. We are praying that this terrible situation will open more doors for the gospel as we reach out to the suffering on both sides.”

Thousands fled their villages and watched the destruction of homes from a hilltop.

”At present, there are more than 1000 people affected. There are no humanitarian organizations to help because this has never happened before in the area, and people are afraid to go there. The government is heavily Mumuye and biased against the Kona, so we must act. So far we have distributed five bags of corn and four bags of rice. We need blankets, clothing, food, medicines, and temporary shelter for these people. It will cost thousands of US dollars to minister the help they need.”
