Boko Haram kills 25 Christian college students at a university in northeastern Nigeria Monday night

The Christian Post is reporting that 25-30 christian students were killed by the Extremist Islamist group Boko Haram:

The killings reportedly occurred in the late night hours on Oct. 1, when masked gunmen went door-to-door in the off-campus housing section of Federal Polytechnic College in Mubi, a city in the remote Adamawa State in northeastern Nigeria.

Open Doors USA sources confirmed that the gunmen separated the Christian students from the Muslim students, addressed each victim by name, questioned them, and then proceeded to shoot them or slit their throat.

„Open Doors is calling on Christians in the West to bear this horrific burden with our brothers and sisters in Mubi and Adamawa state,” Open Doors USA spokesman Jerry Dykstra said in a press release emailed to The Christian Post.

„Nigeria is becoming a killing field,” he added.

Fuentes told CP that according to a local Nigerian police chief, Monday night’s killing were performed by Boko Haram as an act of reprisal after 156 Boko Haram members were arrested in Mubi in late September.

Fuentes told CP over the phone interview that the goal of the terror group, which has reportedly overtaken 13 of Nigeria’s northern states, is to make the country a completely Islamic nation and rid it of all western influence.

„In these [Nigerian] states to be a Christian is of grave danger,” Fuentes said, adding that killing Christians is „Boko Haram’s way of wiping out western influence.”

Fuentes confirmed that in Mobi, where Monday’s massacre took place, there has been some form of violent attack on Christians nearly every day since Nov. 2011.

In light of Monday’s attack, Open Doors USA requested that all Christians pray for the families of the deceased students, who have been „thrown into mourning” and are reportedly in „indescribably pain right now.”

„Please pray for the parents, families and friends of the innocent victim of this slaughter. Pray that they will receive the comfort only our Lord can give. Pray that justice will prevail. Pray that Christians will not retaliate,” Open Doors said.
