Dozens of Nigerian Catholics slaughtered on Pentecost Sunday

More than 50 people were killed during an apparent attack by Islamists on a Pentecost Sunday service at the St. Francis Xavier Church in Owo in southwest Nigeria, about 350km from the capital Lagos.

Many of the dead were reported to be children. Around ten gunmen entered the Church and opened fire. Some were reported to have been carrying explosives.


The attack is just the latest in a series of massacres of African Christians in Nigeria and in other parts of Africa. One report estimated that 3,000 had been murdered in Nigeria alone in the first half of 2021. Despite this, the ongoing slaughter draws little attention in the wider world. Not least from the Irish mainstream media.
