In August alone, 37 Christians have been killed in Nigeria's Kaduna state, and others have had their houses and properties burned in connection to their faith.
This streak of violence is brought on by Muslim Fulani extremists, which does not include the general population of Muslim Fulani tribesmen.
According to a recent report by the United Kingdom's All-Party Parliamentary Group for International Freedom or Belief (APPG), the majority of millions of the Muslim Fulani group do not have extremist views.
However, some of the clans do follow radical Islamist ideology.
It's those Fulani extremists that are responsible for the recent Christian deaths, according to CBN News.
The APPG report also says, "They adopt a comparable strategy to Boko Haram and Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP) and demonstrate a clear intent to target Christians and potent symbols of Christian identity."
Over a two day period, 33 Christians were attacked and killed in five Christian communities in the south Kaduna state, according to CBN News.
On August 16, one resident of the area named Mamman Danbaba shared a text from his phone saying, "There was yet another attack by Fulani herdsmen at about 8 pm. Many lives were lost, and many Christians were injured. Houses and properties burned."
According to the APPG report, the President of Nigeria has tribal loyalties and therefore "He has done virtually nothing to address the behaviour of his fellow tribesmen in the Middle Belt and in the south of the country."
Nigeria remains ranked 12th on the Open Doors' 2020 World Watch List of countries where Christians suffer the most persecution.
