This Imam Hid 262 Christians In A Mosque During Plateau Killings

It’s easy to focus on how people are divided along tribal and religious lines, but several people are out there who aren’t letting these differences stop them from seeing the humanity in others.

One of them 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, he shared, and ordered him to give up the Christians. But he lied and told them all the people with him were Muslims.

It’s so refreshing, seeing that some of us are not letting ideologies and religion and tribe divide us. So inspiring.

  1. Though this man is a good man , but with this manisfestation , it is very clear that the fulani herdsmen are on Jihad and islamisation agenda .

  2. Though this man is a good man , but with this manisfestation , it is very clear that the fulani herdsmen are on Jihad and islamisation agenda .And I suggest that president Buhari should act fast or else herdsmen crisis would turn his best supporters to his worst enemies in no distant time and which will deprive him of 2019 presidential election.

    • Hello Godwin, you need to borrow sense

    • If you still thinking about ethinicity as of today as a Nigerian then foolishness will be a master to you. Please do you think that people are been killed because our President is Buhari or a Fulani or will Fulani herdsmen killing people will be able to kill 200 million Nigerians because as presume by you so that Sai Baba can be in power, were people not been killed when we have President Jonathan or probably you just knew that religion crisis is a new thing in Kaduna and Jos ?, this place has been prone to such problems, permit me to ask that which right thinking sitting President will think Killing his own fellow Citizens will be a way to get voted, even a dummy will know that peaceful coexistence among citizens will enable a Victory in an Election. Those behind the killings are enemies of the country, they have created problem which with collective effort solutions will come because those been killed are not animals, they are our brothers and sisters, they are been murders for nothing, it could have been anyone. As Nigerians we need ensure all hands are on deck so that we can still the Storm of Killings, let carefully obverse and also beware of those who are using this situations Political tool by taking advantage of the menace might also be the one behind, for all I know weapon are not cheap like took pick, we should all bond as a country men to find a lasting solution. I commend your reasoning but will advise you to be more logical when reasoning, for a I know anyone from anywhere including you can be a President of Nigeria and if we vote out Buhari my brother out do you think it will end the Killings. Those who are doing it are doing it for a purpose best known to them, they are internal enemies because it will be difficult for an external thieves to steal without the help of an internal thief. I believe thing don’t just happen, we should all set for war against Killings of our brothers and sisters irrespective of there nomenclature we don’t give a damn about them. All we are saying is that this killing must come to an end.

  3. You shouldn’t have exposed his pic. They may identify him and come after him. God bless him and preserve his life. He will not loose his reward in Jesus name

  4. May God bless u sir, until we start seeing ourselves as one, there will be no peace in Nigeria. God will see u through.

  5. The imam is just doing his job as a Muslim, Allah said in the Quran that if you save one life your reword is like you save a life of thousands of people, same things as you kill one person is like you kill everybody in this world, my point is Allah didn’t mention that only life of a Muslim or Christian or tribe…etc…. we are all the same the most purest in front of our maker is the one who fear him the most , May Allah bless you Imam you show the true value of Islam.

    • It doesn’t talk about saving the lives of Christians who are infidels. This Imam tried to do things out of the Islamic box.

      • quite the opposite of what you just said…”The Dhimmi

        Still, as “People of the Book,” Jews (and Christians) are protected under Islamic law. The traditional concept of the “dhimma” (“writ of protection”) was extended by Muslim conquerors to Christians and Jews in exchange for their subordination to the Muslims. Peoples subjected to Muslim rule usually had a choice between death and conversion, but Jews and Christians, who adhered to the Scriptures, were allowed as dhimmis (protected persons) to practice their faith. This “protection” did little, however, to insure that Jews and Christians were treated well by the Muslims. On the contrary, an integral aspect of the dhimma was that, being an infidel, he had to openly acknowledge the superiority of the true believer–the Muslim.”

      • hus, in return for submission and the payment of the jizya, the poll tax, Islam guaranteed the people of the Book security of life, property and protection in the exercise of their religions.16 Dhimmis had full autonomy under the leadership of their religious chiefs. Each community exercised jurisdiction over matters of personal status, such as marriage, divorce and inheritance. So long as they submitted to the Muslim state and paid the jizya, Christians and Jews were left alone to run their own lives without interference.

      • You are a nerd. You don’t seem to know anything about Islam. It is the duty ordained by Allah SubhanuTa’aka himself that every Muslim must strive to save the lives of people, immaterial of their religious or ethnic affiliation.
        That is Allah’s order. Full stop.

  6. He has acted like Rahad during the time of Joshua. May the Lord remember him during the time of trouble in his life.

  7. This is the choice he made,we need more of such people to make the world a nice place to live in

  8. We can’t be one. Muslims are all at the helm of affairs. Nothing favour christians.

  9. It’s inappropriate putting out this man’s picture on the internet. You should have ran this story without attaching his picture for security reasons, then again, this is Nigeria where majority of the citizens are unreasonable.

  10. God will reward him for his good work

  13. Suhanallah(Glorified is God) it is every time good to think, reason before making any speech or post. God will continue to bless my brothers that has spoken earlier, their speech wasn’t in support of the killings but against it. Islam (means religion of peace). No Muslim should proclaim for war( According to Suratul Anfal Quran chapter 8 verse 15).Any one trying to cause war by word or sword in Nigeria or any part of the world. God we pray to you send unto the soft mind and let’s live in peace.

  14. Should also take up arms and defend yourself from these illiterates. We can’t die like lamps in the name of religion. Enough of this nonsense.

  15. He has done something dat others can’t do,showing his image is not good enough bc he is not safe. They may go after him.

  16. man of the people

    Bbc British own gutter media are evil…they just want us biafarans to live together with all this evil hausa fulanis and that can never happen ….. .free biafrans or thunder will strike all of you

  17. Benjamin Gbeglo

    This is a noble act by all standards, but sensitive and delicate issues like this are supposed to be treated on the quiet. Getting this one publicised like this jeopardises not only the noble man’s life, but also such good gestures in the future as the perpetrators of evil wouldn’t trust such similar benefactors.

  18. Benard Odhiambo Omogi

    Even if Muslims kill all Christians. They will again start killing themselves. All we need is Education, Love and Togetherness despite our religious affiliations.

  19. God bless you imam. Bother not with some Christians’ hatred of Muslims. What you did was truly Islamic.
