Jihadists Screaming Allah Akbar Kidnap Dozens Of Christians, Demand Jizyah by BetterHeadline: 3:44pm On Dec 01, 2023
Gunmen abducted more than 100 people from the Mutunji community in Zamfara State in northwest Nigeria this weekend for not paying a tax imposed by the bandits. A leader in the community was also killed, according to locals.

SOURCE
The bandit’s leader, Damana, sent a ransom letter to the community demanding 110 million nairas (about $135,000 U.S.). He also threatened to abduct more people if the ransom weren’t paid. Neighboring communities were also sent a threatening note.

A Christian Leader from Zamfara State said the shooters targeted Christians, and that 72 members of his church were abducted. He said that dozens of attackers came on motorcycles shouting Allah Akbar [Allah is Greater] and abducted senior citizens from Mutunji villages and neighboring communities.

Locals said the attacks began Friday and continued through Monday, yet no police or soldiers responded — despite military and police checkpoints in the village. Survivors are hiding in the bush, and police have yet to respond. Villagers cry out for the government to protect them. The village is made up of Muslims and Christians, but islamic terrorists want to eradicate Christians.

[b]Gata Moses, a Christian rights activist in Jos city, accused the Zamfara government of keeping silent and being complicit in the attacks. Gata said that the gunmen are the same jihadists carrying out attacks against Christians in Borno, Maiduguri, Yobe, and Taraba. Some are Fulani militants killing Christians in Plateau, Benue, and Southern Kaduna.
