Muslims Kidnap Dozens Of Black Africans, Tie Them Up With Barbed Wire And Sodomize Them, Then Force Them To Drink From Toilet Bowls Before Selling Them As Slaves

Thousands of stories have emerged about Muslims in Libya kidnapping black African people and selling them into slavery. According to a recent report, dozens of men from Nigeria were just freed from slavery, and they have testified that while in captivity they were raped, tied with barbed wire and forced to drink from toilets while performing brutal labor before they were to be sold as slaves to another owner:

Dozens of Nigerian migrants freed from indentured servitude in Libya are now returning home and have recounted abuses suffered at the hands of traffickers, jailers and bosses who bought them or rented them as slaves.

The Nigerians, who spent years in Libya trying to buy their way to freedom and across the Mediterranean to Europe, told the BBC how they were raped, starved, beaten and sold as slaves in the war-ravaged country.

Stories of black slavery in Libya have emerged frequently over the last two years after a NATO-backed intervention in the North African nation toppled 40-year leader Muammar el-Qaddafi in 2011. The bloody civil war that followed years later has led to an explosion in people-trafficking in the country and a clandestine slave trade.

The Nigerians, returning home via Benin, where they have been taken by the United Nations International Organization for Migration, explained how the town of Gharyan, in Libya’s mountainous west, had become a hub for indentured servitude. After individuals crossed illegally into Libya, they would be taken to the local prison where they were sold or leased as slaves.

“They come to our caravans [cells], they pick six persons to do their dirty jobs, to do farming, brick-laying work,” Lucky Akhanene recounted of his experience. “They give us out to their friends. They don’t pay us. It’s just hard labor. If you’re not fast with your job, you get beaten,” he added.

Jackson Uwumarogie, who was arrested on the Mediterranean trying to flee Libya, said he was sold with 20 men for a price roughly equivalent to $735. On a farm where he harvested onions and fed cattle, he was only given food every few days and seawater to drink. Other Nigerians also described eating insubstantial meals and having to drink water from toilets to survive.

Another man, Mac Agheyere, described how he was held in bondage by a boss who owned some beach huts and a car wash by the sea. When Agheyere refused to work for no money, eventually he was abused and taken back to the prison. “He beat me with an iron bar,” Agheyere said. “They took barbed wire and tied my hands and my feet and threw me inside a car and took me back to prison.”

Gharyan, 60 miles south of Tripoli, is held by militias loyal to Libya’s U.N. Government of National Accord. The paramilitary groups, which have controlled Libya since the country’s revolutionary war, have been vying for power by fighting turf wars, often battling for control of lucrative smuggling routes and making travel dangerous.

The European Union has sought to create a buffer in Libya to stop migrants and refugees from arriving, predominantly in Italy. However, the policy has increased the number of people now languishing in Libyan prisons who could become victims of the slave trade. Zeid bin Ra’ad al-Hussein, the United Nations human rights chief, has described the policy as “inhumane.” (source)

Soldiers Break Into Church During Services, Fire Tear Gas And Attack, Rob, And Murder Eight Christians

Soldiers Break Into Church During Services, Fire Tear Gas And Attack, Rob, And Murder Eight Christians

Eight Christians were murdered and many more assaulted and robbed after Congolese soldiers attacked a Church during services looking for Christians who were protesting against the government of the Congo and its current President, Joseph Kabila according to a report:

Police stormed Catholic churches and fired tear gas during Mass in the Democratic Republic of Congo on Sunday, it has emerged, as protests organised by lay Catholic activists against the rule of president Joseph Kabila intensified and at least eight were killed.

A witness at St Michael’s Church in central Kinshasa, the capital, told AFP that officers broke up the Mass and arrested altar boys, still in their liturgical robes, who had previously been protesting against the president.

‘While we were praying, the soldiers and the police entered the church compound and fired teargas at the church,’ the witness said.

Another added: ‘People fell, first-aiders are resuscitating old ladies who have fallen’ – but all the while the priest continued saying Mass.

Meanwhile, it emerged that police had beaten and robbed Catholics when they sought refuge in his church, shooting out its stained-glass windows. The rector of Kinshasa’s St Alphonse Parish, Mgr Hugues Ndongisila, told Radio France Internationale that the bodies of two dead protesters had later been collected by the Red Cross.

The clashes, in which security forces have targeted Catholic protesters, have left at least eight dead and 120 people detained.

The December 31 protest against Kabila’s rule – which began in 2001 – was organised by the Kinshasa archdiocesan lay coordination committee. At least a dozen priests are reportedly among those detained.

Yesterday, the Congolese bishops’ conference said in a statement: ‘We condemn with utmost vigour this unjustified violence. We similarly denounce this attack on freedom of worship, which is guaranteed in every democratic state, as well as the profanation of churches and physical aggression against the faithful and their priests.’

The statement added that the bishops were ‘profoundly shocked by such ignoble acts’ and would demand a ‘serious and objective inquiry’.

And in a rare appearance before the media, Cardinal Laurent Monsengwo, wearing a red prayer cap and gold cross, accused security forces of opening fire on peaceful protesters and desecrating places of worship.

‘We can only denounce, condemn and stigmatize the actions of the supposedly valiant men in uniform, which are, unfortunately, nothing more, nothing less than barbarism,’ Monsengwo told reporters in Kinshasa.

‘How can we trust leaders incapable of protecting the population, of guaranteeing peace, justice and love of people?’ (source)

Christian Man Converts To Islam And Demands His Ex-Muslim Wife Become Muslim, She Says “Never,” He Files False Charges And Colludes With Muslim Policemen To Have Her Arrested And Her Children Taken Away And Forced Into Islam

Christian Man Converts To Islam And Demands His Ex-Muslim Wife Become Muslim, She Says “Never,” He Files False Charges And Colludes With Muslim Policemen To Have Her Arrested And Her Children Taken Away And Forced Into Islam

A Christian man converted to Islam in order to get a job in his area. He demanded his wife, who is a former Muslim turned Christian, and their children convert to Islam. When she refused to do either, he colluded with the local Muslim authorities to file kidnapping charges against her and is now facing jailtime at the same time he has taken the children out of church and is trying to force them into Islam according to a report:

A Christian woman and her adult daughter face kidnapping charges filed to pressure them into following the family patriarch’s conversion to Islam, sources said.

Amina Isa, 40, of Kano state’s Gidan Kuran village in Tudun Wada Local Government Area, told Morning Star News that her husband left Christianity to obtain a government job, and that he and other Muslim officials have pressured her to convert to Islam by filing false kidnapping charges against her and her 21-year-old daughter.

The mother of five children said her husband, Garba Usman, converted to Islam in 2012 as a precondition for appointment as ward head in their village.

“They told him that he cannot be appointed as a ward head because he’s a Christian, and that if he converts to Islam, he’ll be appointed the ward head,” Isa said. “I advised him against changing his religious faith for worldly position, but after much pressure from Muslims in our area, he succumbed to the demand and became a Muslim.”

She had told him that she would not convert to Islam along with him, she said.

“I reminded him that he should remember that all my family members are Muslims, but that I am the only Christian in that family, and that I married him because he was a Christian like me, so I cannot now convert to Islam simply because the Muslims have appointed him a ward head,” she said.

Their five children also refused to convert to Islam and insisted they would remain Christians with her, and as a result, she and three of her daughters – ages 6, 15 and 21 – were abused, she said.

“Because of their refusal to convert too, we have been threatened, beaten, and subjected to all forms of indignities by my husband and his Muslim collaborators,” Isa said. “They’ve constantly been threatened, beaten, and harassed. In fact, at one time, [the oldest daughter, name withheld for security reasons] had to take her younger siblings and go into hiding, but both have been traced and captured by the officials and are currently being held against their will in a location undisclosed to me.”

The couple separated after Usman’s conversion to Islam, and he took the three daughters to live with him, she said. He adamantly opposed their continued attendance at church worship services and participation in Bible studies or other church activities. The 15- and 21-year-old daughters were active members of the church’s evangelism outreach group, but their father has stopped them from participating in it or attending worship services, Isa said.

“Right now, my daughters are in the custody of these Muslim officials and are being forced into Islam, while at the same time, we are being tried on false charges,” Isa said. “All this is to force us to recant. We can never stop being Christians, and we are confident that the God we serve can never abandon us in our trying moments.”

A member of the Evangelical Church Winning All (ECWA) in Gidan Kuran, Isa said the kidnapping charge arose early last year. Usman and Muslim officials had forcibly enrolled the couple’s youngest daughter in an Islamic school, she said, and Isa and her oldest daughter undertook efforts to enroll the younger daughters at a Christian school in Zaria.

They were able to enroll one of the daughters before Usman found out and reported it to the Muslim authorities, she said.

“Their father, in anger, came to me demanding for both girls,” she said. “When I told him that the children have decided to remain as Christians, he and other Muslim officials in our village went to file charges against me on abducting my own children at the Magistrate Court in Tudun Wada town, a trial I’m still facing for refusing to change my religious faith. They summoned me and demanded I withdraw my daughter from the Christian school, bring her back to the village, and hand her over to them. Since I was helpless, I did as instructed by them and brought my daughter back to them.”

Both she and her oldest daughter were arrested in March 2017 and taken to court before they were bailed out with the help of area Christian leaders, she said. The adult daughter went into hiding after winning bail, but her father and the other Muslim leaders found her and are holding her with the two younger daughters at a site unknown to their mother, Isa said.

The Rev. Ayuba Hassan of the ECWA, who is also chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Tudun Wada LGA Chapter, told Morning Star News said that the association has hired an attorney for her.

“We’ve been able to accompany her to the court a number of times,” he said. “We pray that she’ll be able to get justice from the court.”

Isa appeared in court three times last year, and the trial continues at the Magistrate Court in Tudun Wada Dankadai town. (source)

Two Christians In Egypt Gunned Down Outside Of Store By Terrorist On Motorcycle On New Years Day

Two Christians In Egypt Gunned Down Outside Of Store By Terrorist On Motorcycle On New Years Day

Just days after a horrible attack on a church that killed 11 people in Egypt, two more Christians were gunned down by a terrorist on a motorcycle on New Years Day outside of a liquor store according to a report:

Just days after 11 people were killed during an attack targeting Christians in Cairo, two more Coptic Christians were killed by a gunman in Egypt on New Year’s morning in Cairo’s twin city.

Egyptian security officials confirmed the killing of two Christian brothers, who were slain during an attack on their friend’s liquor store in the town of Giza.

According to sources who spoke with AFP, the gunman was masked and on the back of a motorcycle taxi when he began firing on the liquor store at around 1:30 a.m. Monday.

Reuters reports that the weapon of choice was a rifle. At the time of the attack, the sources said that there were still New Year’s celebrators walking along the street.

The motive for the attack has not yet been made clear and there was no immediate claim of responsibility, which typically occurs after larger attacks on religious minorities in the region. The gunman is still at large.

The Egypt Independent reports that the two victims are named Ashraf and Adel Azar, who own a parts store located near the liquor store. The two were in the liquor store at the time of the incident to help the store’s owner, Raouf, transfer boxes of liquor from his vehicle into the store. The store’s owner survived the incident.

Although local residents tried to help the shooting victims, the men died on their way to a hospital.

The liquor store attack comes as 11 people lost their lives last Friday when a masked gunman opened fire at the Coptic Orthodox Church of Saint Menas in Cairo and a nearby shop owned by a Coptic Christian businessman. Ten citizens and one police officer were killed.

According to The Sunday Times, the liquor store killing bears a resemblance to the attack on the Cairo church and nearby Christian shop in the fact that it involved two gunmen who opened fire on a motorcycle. (source)

New Years Day Massacre As 16 Christians Are Randomly Gunned Down Right After Church Service In Nigeria

New Years Day Massacre As 16 Christians Are Randomly Gunned Down Right After Church Service In Nigeria

The 2018 new year got off to a violent start as 16 Christians were randomly gunned down as they were leaving Church in Nigeria according to a recent report:

Unidentified gunmen shot and killed at least 16 Christians following a New Year’s Day church service in Nigeria.

BBC News reported Tuesday that the attack occurred in the oil-rich region of Rivers state, which has seen heightened tensions between rival gangs.

The Nigerian Independent reported that the gunmen opened fire at random early Monday morning on people leaving the church who had gone to welcome in the New Year, though there were conflicting reports on the number of casualties.

At least 12 others are believed to have been hospitalized following the shootings.

The public relations officer of the command, DSP Nnamdi Omoni, responded to the incident, stating, “The deputy commissioner of police in charge of operation and other tactical heads have been mobilized there to restore peace.”

Omoni added, “The Commissioner of Police (Ahmed Zaki) has launched a manhunt for the bandits to ensure they are arrested and prosecuted.

“When the DCP and the teams there conclude we will know the total number of people involved.”

BBC noted that at first, residents in Omuku town had difficulty distinguishing the gunshots from the firework celebrations.

The town is known for its violent crimes, and has seen an increase of violence this past year, with militants aiming to control a greater share of the oil-producing region.

While it is not yet clear whether the attack on the church was connected to the oil conflict, Christians in Nigeria suffered violently at the hands of different groups in 2017. (source, source)
