Polycarp has been working in crisis-ridden areas, living in rural villages with the people and accompanying the faithful in their faith. He has felt the direct impact of these attacks. On his birthday, the Fulani militants stormed his parish home, burning down the parish church, his home and destroying the entire village. His escape was a miracle.  Fr. Polycarp says he has seen countless murdered in the most brutal way and up to 84 churches under his pastoral care completely destroyed by the militants.Constant and intense clashes – farmerMr Solomon Yuhwam, a Catholic father of three, is a farmer. In his community of Dan Anacha, a village in Nigeria’s North Eastern State of Taraba, the clash between the Fulani herdsmen and the farmers is very intense.He will be sharing his encounter with the Fulani herdsmen and explaining the real situation of the crisis in the North Eastern part of Nigeria.In Nigeria the Muslim extremist group Boko Haram has repeatedly attacked and killed Christians. But in northern Nigeria’s Middle Belt area a bigger threat for Christians comes from the Hausa-Fulani Muslim Herdsman. Thousands of Christians have been killed, entire villages razed to the ground and hundreds left homeless.  Just over 38 million people belong to the larger Fulani cluster of ethnic groups found in pockets across 19 Central and West African countries.Everyone is invited to this event.WhatsApp <a href=’http://revive.newsbook.com.mt/www/delivery/ck.php?n=ab2c8853&amp;cb={random}’ target=’_blank’><img src=’https://revive.newsbook.com.mt/www/delivery/avw.php?zoneid=97&amp;cb={random}&amp;n=ab2c8853&amp;ct0={clickurl_enc}’ border=’0′ alt=” /></a>last_img

It was very important for me to learn how to time my runs and create opportunities for others.” last_img
