Will the Islamophobia never end? Imagine the international outcry if the roles were reversed here, although that would never happen. But no one will take much notice of this.  “Six Girls, Two Staff Members Kidnapped from Christian-Run High School in Nigeria,” , October 7, 2019:

JOS, Nigeria (Morning Star News) – A day before the Kaduna governor said kidnappers terrorizing the state are working with Boko Haram, Muslim Fulani herdsmen on Thursday (Oct. 3) kidnapped six teenage girls and two staff members from a Christian-run high school in north-central Nigeria, sources said.

Suspected to be herdsmen who have carried out numerous kidnappings and attacks in southern Kaduna state, the armed Fulani at 12:20 a.m. invaded Engravers’ College in Kakau Daji village, in Chikun County Local Government Area near Kaduna city, as students and staff members fled into the bushes, the sources said. The eight victims were taken away at gunpoint.
