36 Reported Dead as Islamic Militants Continue Attacks on Christian Villages in Mali and Nigeria

Armed Islamic militants killed 27 civilians in central Mali in three attacks on predominately Christian farming villages in less than 24 hours, local officials said on Thursday.

Central Mali like its neighbors Burkina Faso and Nigeria has been devastated by Islamic militants known as Fulani herdsmen.

The local officials told Reuters the militants carried out three attacks between Tuesday night and Wednesday evening.

“We were surprised by the attack on the village of Tillé. Seven were killed, all Dogons, some of them burned alive,” said Yacouba Kassogué, the deputy mayor of Doucombo, the municipality in which Tillé is located.

Other attacks in the neighboring areas of Bankass and Koro also killed another 20 villagers. Most of the people were shot or burned to death, local officials said.

Mali has been in turmoil since 2012 when al-Qaeda-linked extremists captured the northern two-thirds of the country. French Army units drove them out of several areas, but they have regrouped and expanded their operations into neighboring counties, according to Reuters.

The militants launched this most recent attack on Tudu-Doka Avong along Kaduna-Kachia road, killing nine people and injuring several others.

Usman Stingo, a community representative, confirmed the incident to ICC.

“It happened at about 5:45 a.m. on Wednesday, June 3, 2020. The gunmen arrived at the village and started shooting sporadically. They entered into some homes and burnt household stuff. The situation is very, very pathetic,” he said.

The recent attacks on the Adara communities spreading across Kajuru and Kachia local council areas in southern Kaduna impacted approximately 537 households and approximately 20,000 people have been displaced.

ICC’s Regional Manager for Africa, Nathan Johnson said the government needs to take action.

“Kajuru Local Government Area has now been attacked nearly a dozen times in the past month. Despite this, the government has not taken any clear or decisive steps to stop the violence. They have not caught any of the perpetrators, saved any lives, or assisted any of those who have suffered,” Johnson said.

“This continued inaction is costing many people their lives, homes, and loved ones. It is time that the government in Nigeria is held accountable for the many lives that they have failed to defend. They are either completely incompetent and must be removed, or they are complicit and need to be thrown in jail,” he concluded.

Nigeria is ranked 12th and Mali 29th on Open Doors’ 2020 World Watch List of countries where Christians suffer the most persecution.
