CWN Editor's Note: Bishop William Amove Avenya of Gboko, Nigeria, has warned that escalating attacks on Christians by Fulani tribesmen could soon become a genocidal campaign. “Please don’t make the same mistake as was made with the genocide in Rwanda,” he said. He observed that age-old tribal conflicts have been aggravated by religious tensions and by a recent flood of powerful weapons into the region.
