A video has surfaced showing the heartbreaking moment a pastor cried bitterly while calling for help in against the jihad in Nigeria.
The cleric was overwhelmed with emotions as he explained his situation and that of his people.
The video was shared online by a former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode. In the video, an elderly clergyman wept as he called on America, the international community, pastors, lawmakers and others to come to their aid as villages in the Plateau state are still facing serious attacks.
Eight persons, including a pastor, his wife and three children, were killed and 95 houses burnt after jihadis attacked eight villages in the Plateau state.
Crickets chirping in newsrooms across the world.
Look at what they are doing to our people. It is heartbreaking.

Muslim Militants Burn Alive Christian Pastor and His Family in Nigeria

By Thomas D. Williams, Ph.D. Breitbart, August 20, 2018:
Fulani Muslim militants launched raids on eight villages in central Nigeria this week, burning alive a Christian pastor along with his wife and three of their children.
In the village of Abonong in Plateau State, the Islamic raiders, armed with machetes and AK47 rifles, looted and destroyed 95 houses, along with farmland and three churches. They killed Pastor Adamu Gyang Wurim and his family by setting fire to their house while they were inside and shot the pastor’s wife in the bathroom. The assailants killed two other villagers as well, wounding several others.
The attack, which began Tuesday evening around 8:00 p.m., lasted over four hours before security personnel finally arrived on the scene. By then the attackers had razed much of the villages of Abonong and Ziyat, and stolen valuables including electronics, mattresses, food, and livestock.
The incident occurred just 24 hours after a two-day peace summit in Jos organized by the Christian Association of Nigeria with the theme, “Sustainable peace and security in Northern Nigeria as a panacea for development.”
A local lawyer, Dalyop Solomon Mwantiri, spoke with one of the three surviving children of the pastor, who was away at the University of Jos at the time of the attack and learned of it on Facebook.
“When I called a friend to find out about the situation, the report I received was very devastating,” the young man said. “I couldn’t believe that all my family members have been engulfed in the pogrom. On reaching home, I saw my daddy and younger ones burnt beyond recognition.”
