Nigerian Christians Protest Over Killings in Herdsmen Attacks

Hundreds of Christians gathered at the National Christian Center, Abuja, for a peaceful protest against killings across the country. They expressed their disgust over the many lives lost to attacks by suspected herdsmen. The protest was triggered by the killings of 19 people including two Catholic priests during an early morning mass at Saint Ignatius Catholic Church, Benue State in March.
