Boko Haram Muslims extremists behead 6-year-old boy because he’s Christian

In the most heinous act of violence, Boko Haram murdered more people in Nigeria, more specifically, a six-year-old boy, due to their faith in Jesus Christ.

According to the Voice of the Martyrs, the horrible incidents occurred in a mostly Christian communities in (Attagara, Gwoza district, Borno State) Nigeria, where a resident named Sawaltha Wandala witnessed several children being killed by the Islamic terrorist group when they were going to a church’s second service that day.

Wandala reportedly tried to rescue the six-year-old boy in order to take him to a hospital in Cameroon. The boy was brutally hacked and thrown into a ditch by the group. Five of Sunni extremist soldiers attacked the man, snatched the young child out of his hands and decapitated the child in front of the 55-year-old African man.

Wandala was then savagely beaten by the militants with tree branches before being struck in the head with a rock.

In another attack, back in July, a man named John Yakuba was mutilated by the Boko Haram after they told him the following statement according to witnesses:

“We know you’re John,” said the Boko Haram to Yakuba, according to the VOM report, “You must convert to Islam or else you will die a painful death.”

After Yakuba maintained his Christian faith, he was assaulted in various ways while being tied to a tree, including mutilation to his hands, back, and feet with a machete.

Yakuba said the following to Boko Haram after they asked him that “Will you become a Muslim now?”

“You can kill my body, but not my soul,” screamed Yakuba to his abusers.
