In recent years, Fulani militants have been attacking Christian areas of northern Nigeria, regularly kidnapping, injuring, and killing thousands of people. To protect their town, Pastor Ibrahim Isa and a group of men guarded it throughout the night. Pastor Ibrahim was born in the predominately Muslim Fulani tribe but was considered a traitor to that group because he had converted to Christianity. On the morning of April 15, 2022, as Pastor Ibrahim was walking home alone after a night of guarding his village, a group of radical Fulani men ambushed him. He tried to run away, but they shot him multiple times and killed him. He is survived by his wife and five children.
