Islamic Gunmen Murder 30 Christians, Including Children by BetterHeadline: 3:38pm On Oct 31, 2023
Christians in the town of Oicha in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) are reeling after at least 30 believers, including children, were killed in recent incidents.

On Tuesday, armed men stormed Masosi, a Christian neighbourhood in Oicha, North Kivu province. “When the people heard gunshots at the beginning, they thought thieves had come into the village, which is not unusual,” shares Mumbere, a local Christian youth leader. “But when the cracking of bullets lasted for an hour, they then knew it was the ADF [which has links to Islamic State.]”

Christians were killed as they began to run for safety. Those who could not flee were burnt in their houses. At least 26 bodies, including those of 12 children, have been identified, but the death toll may be higher with many Christians reported missing. Shops were also looted. Masosi has been emptied of its population, with most fleeing to safer neighbourhoods.

Two days earlier, on Sunday, Mumbere Kafukuliro and Mbambu Ndalya – both from the Pastoral School in Oicha – were killed on the way to their farm. Whilst on 4 October, it emerged that Pastor Mbusa Lisasi, a father of six, and his brother Kakule Lisasi had been killed after they had been kidnapped on the way to their farm on 30 September.

Following the latest attack on Tuesday, locals in Oicha took to the streets, carrying corpses of the victims, to protest against insecurity. Schools and markets were closed, with angry communities burning more than 150 tonnes of food from the World Food Programme (WFP) for internally displaced people (IDPs) in the town.

“We don't need humanitarian aid, but we do want security,” one frustrated demonstrator told the media when asked why residents had attacked trucks carrying relief aid.

“This is a bad situation,” said Pastor Paluku Bagheni Joseph, a teacher at the Bible college used by Open Doors field contacts.

Africans NEED to get rid of this Saudi Arabian culture known as Islam once and for all. Its not our culture in Africa to murder children in the name of a Saudi Arabian moon god known as Allah. Allah has shown itself to be a blood thirsty despicable god that has no place among humanity.
