Christians in Plateau State need to be on high alert for a Christmas season pogrom planned and developed by Islamic militants. The militants contracted a Nigerian based Syrian to supply them with sophisticated weapons and other armaments. The weapons were hidden in boxes of dates and smuggled into Nigeria via its porous border with Niger. The weapons were then off-loaded in Bauchi where the light weapons were then driven to Jos and the heavier weapons transported to Jos by donkey’s along traditional Hausa-Fulani cattle trails.
The weapons are now in Jos and have been distributed to Hausa-Fulani herders to execute the pogrom. The mission of the Islamist is to Islamize northern Nigeria. The pogrom may have already begun as eyewitnesses are reporting an undocumented massacre that happen during the week of Dec. 9, 2012 in the Jos vicinity where the victims were shoot and then buried in a mass grave by men dressed in military uniforms.
