Entire families slaughtered in month of attacks, apparently with military help.

A rash of attacks by armed Muslim extremists on villages in Nigeria’s Plateau state in the past month have left more than 100 Christians dead, including the elimination of entire families, sources said.
According to Compass Direct News (CDN), in a guerilla-type “hit and run” attack on the Christian community of Vwang Kogot, Muslim attackers at about 8 p.m. on Sept. 9 killed 14 Christians, including a pregnant woman.
CDN says survivors of the attack told Compass that the assailants raided the village with the aid of men in military uniforms of the Nigerian Army.
Gyang Badung survived the attack, but his wife, four children, mother, grandmother and a nephew did not, he told Compass.
Vou Mallam, another survivor of the attack, was with her husband and children when the raiders broke into their house. She escaped death when she found a hiding place in one of the rooms. Her husband, only son and grandchildren were killed. She said she heard the assailants speaking the Fulani language.
