According to Open Doors USA spokesman Jerry Dykstra, members of the terrorist organization Boko Haram raided Federal Polytechnic College in the city of Mubi, a remote area of northeastern Nigeria.

“[They] allegedly lined up some of the students and massacred up to 30 of the students,” Dykstra reports. “They were interviewed, and some of them were let go; some of them were killed by guns and by knives.”

It is the latest attack in a string of violent incidents directed at Christians and moderate Muslims who do not agree with the terrorist group’s tactics.

“I know the Associated Press puts the number of lives lost — not only Christians, but the total so far this year — around 700,” the Open Doors spokesman relays. “Obviously, most of them, if not a great total of that, [are] Christians, and [Boko Haram has] stated publicly that their goal is to eliminate Christianity from all of Nigeria and set up a sharia state.”
