I saw this story and could not help but share. Even with the tribal and religious lines everywhere, there are still people are out there who aren’t letting these differences stop them from seeing the humanity in others.
One of such is this imam from the village of Nghar Yelwa in Plateau State, who saved 262 Christians from Fulani Herdsmen on Sunday.
The herdsmen had attacked 3 local governments in the state killing over 100 people, one of them Barkin Ladi, where the people had escaped from.
Sharing his story with BBC Pidgin, the imam said he first took the women, number about 60 to his home, and the men to the mosque to hide.
The herdsmen later accosted him and ordered him to give up the Christians. But he lied and told them all the people with him were Muslims.
God bless him.
