Muslim Fulani herdsmen seeking grazing lands among predominantly Christian tribes have made the north-central areas of Nigeria very volatile, the leader of a native ministry said.
Some of the ministry’s most effective church planting and humanitarian work has taken place in the area, including water boreholes in three villages and a school for the children.
“The greatest challenge remains security of the area and for our missionaries,” he said. “We have suffered losses there – some missionaries killed, and one for three years still missing. We have no idea what happened to him.”
