Why are Muslims attacking and killing Chritians in Northern Nigeria?
Here are some facts from recent reports:
The latest attack on the Rt. Rev. Ali Buba Lamido, 47-year-old Anglican Bishop of Wusasa diocese in Kaduna state, began as the past year's previous three did…
Armed men, whom he believes were Muslim militants, asked the guards at his home where he was, announcing they were going to kill him.
This time, on March 10th, a guest of one of his guards was shot dead.
The guard and another worker were seriously injured.
The four attacks on his house since April 2005 have involved no attempted robbery.
"It is difficult to believe it was not religiously motivated, because some bishops have been attacked and one priest was murdered in a similar way," he said. "And the killers never stole anything from their houses."
Pray God will continue to protect Bishop Lamido.
Pray he will have the forgiving spirit of Christ toward the attackers and will encourage the Christian community to pray for their enemies.
Pray the Holy Spirit will overcome the spirit of violence controlling the Muslims in Nigeria.

Two female Christian students remain missing after seven Muslims, also young women students, attacked them on March 18th, at Ahmadu Bello University in Kaduna state.
The two students were about to bathe at the women's residence when the Muslim women emerged from a mosque and attacked, beating them until they were unconscious.
The women, identified only as Joy and Priscilla, were treated at the university health clinic but were not seen again…
Their disappearance has raised religious tensions on campus.
James Kagbu, the university's Joint Chapel Council secretary, said, "Muslim students under the auspices of the Muslim Students' Society have been terrorizing Christians in the university without provocation."
Pray Joy and Priscilla will be found and returned to their families.
Pray they will be strengthened by the presence of their Savior.
Pray Christians at the university will be the fragrance of Christ to fellow students.
