Amidst the ongoing Covid-19 Pandemic Lockdown in Nigeria, as places like some parts Plateau State and Southern parts of Kaduna State of Nigeria are seriously suffering from the continuous attacks of the Fulani Terrorists that is claiming the lives of many on a daily basis, the Hausa Christians are paying the one of the highest prices with their lives for their faith in Christ due to the rapidly increasing kidnapping, forceful Islamization and forced marriage of our young girls and even married women.
The Hausa Christians Foundation (HACFO) has been advocating for the end of the incessant abductions of our young Hausa Christian Girls in Northern Nigeria in which God granted us the victory of securing the freedom of 15 of these girls in less than 3 years, the evil has upgraded to the level of even kidnapping, Islamizing and forced marriage of even our married women. From 2019 till date we have a record of 4 married women in Islamic captivity in Kano, Katsina and Kaduna State.
Mrs Regina Yakubu Solomon who hails from Maraban Kanya, Kafur LGA of Katsina State is a current victim of this evil. She is a mother of 2 and married for 9 years. As her husband and family are trusting God for her healing due to the long term illness she has been suffering from, to their amazement, the traditional rulers and muslim clerics of that area have ceased her, canceled her Christian marriage with her husband, Islamized her and married her off.
As if that is not enough, from the same Katsina State, Malumfashi and Malamawa to be précised three more girls have been abducted and subjected to the same evil practices. In fact two of these girls are from the same family.
Our efforts to secure the release of these girls have been seriously limited by the lockdown that has restricted movements. We have written to the relevant authorities in some of these places, but they refused to act on any of these cases.
While people are faced with the hardship of this pandemic, some people are perpetrating evil on Christians and are freely moving around unchallenged by the authorities even though they are well known.
We therefore want to call on all the Christians and every well-meaning Nigerians and even the international communities to come to the aids of our people as the pain and the persecution are becoming unbearable.
We also call on the Katsina, Kano, and Kaduna State Governors and the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria to urgently intervene in these cases for the interest of the peace, progress and unity of our dear states and the country at large.
