In Nigeria, Muslim Fulani herdsmen take a Christian Pastor, his wife and his daughter slew them with a machete. When the Christian family was still alive they set all of the three alive after binding them with ropes.

The terrible incident occurred when Fulani Muslims attacked the Christian pastor while he was still in his church. The attackers also seized his wife and daughter. After seizing them they slay the three of them with machete while they tied them with ropes in their own housed afterwards. When the three of them were still alive they set the entire building on fire as a result of which three of them were burnt alive. The security officials have managed to locate the charred dead bodies.

An eye witness, who was near the church when the attack took place, said: Suddenly we heard sounds of gunshots around our village,” she said. “The pastor was still in the pastorate when the Muslim Fulani gunmen forced their way onto the church premises. They cut him, his wife, and a daughter with a machete, and then tied the hands and feet of the three of them before setting the house on fire. The three of them were burned to ashes in the living room of the pastorate. We only found the charred remains of the three of them the following morning.”
