JOS, Nigeria, October 1, 2021 (Morning Star News) – A Muslim mob in northern Nigeria agitated over the killing of a woman by a man they believed had converted to Christianity hacked a pastor to death with machetes last week and burned down his home, church and school, sources said.
The Rev. Yohanna Shuaibu of New Life Church in Kano state’s Massu village, Sumaila County died in the early hours of Sept. 23 after he was attacked the previous night, they said.
“The Muslims felt the young man who killed the woman in a fight is a Christian, and they likely targeted the pastor for attack because it was through the ministry of Pastor Shuaibu that many Muslims were converted to the Christian faith,” said Hosle Tongnan Michael, a friend and colleague of Pastor Shuaibu.
