US Govt Report: Fulani Terrorist Impunity Against Plateau Christians Continues Under Tinubu’s Leadership

The US Department of State has condemned the continuous senseless violence against Christians perpetrated by marauding Fulani herdsmen in Plateau State, Nigeria.


In its recently released ‘2023 Country Reports on Human Rights Practices: Nigeria,’ the U.S. government voiced its concerns regarding the situation, emphasizing the alarming frequency of deliberate killings and attacks by extremist groups.

The report highlights the urgent need for effective measures to address these atrocities and protect the lives of innocent civilians.

It said, “In October, suspected Boko Haram militants shot at villagers and set off a land mine in Yobe State, killing at least 40 individuals. On December 23 and 24, unknown gunmen attacked 17 villages in Plateau State and killed at least 150 individuals. Local leaders blamed herders for the attack.’’
