A Muslim villager in Kaduna State allegedly helped Fulani herdsmen and other area Muslims ambush a Christian settlement, resulting in the death of one woman and gunshot wounds to two others, Compass Direct News reports. After a schoolteacher helped them survey the site, the Muslim gunmen waited behind trees outside Kunam Musa Blak's house, killing her and wounding her husband and his cousin when they came outside. The Christian settlement in the Jankassa ward of Kukum Gida village consists of 425 people who all attend the local Evangelical Church Winning All. "Even though this is the first attack on our community, we are now living in fear and uncertainty as regards our safety," said Jonah Bayina, the head of the village ward. "I have been praying that these Muslims who attack us come to know Jesus Christ as their Savior, too."
