(Nigeria)–Meanwhile, Nigeria’s press is reporting that military police have arrested no fewer than 235 in connection with recent rioting. Among them, three Muslim militants who allegedly wore military uniforms and used military weapons to kill Christians in the central Nigerian city of Jos last month. The three Muslim militants were charged with unlawful possession and use of military uniforms and weapons. A total of 300 rioters were also arrested, and all but 30 have been arraigned. Please pray for believers in the area, as peace remains very tenuous.
