Imam prevented 262 Christians from being killed in Plateau massacre by hiding them in a mosque

The death toll in the Plateau massacre could have increased if it were not for the kind and timely intervention of an imam in the village of Inghar Yerwa.

According to the BBC, men and women in the 11 communities that were attacked, remained firm with their children in the neighboring communities for safety.

While they were running, the Imam saw them and decided to open his house so he could hide from his attackers. He kept the men in the mosque while the women and children he had in his house.

The attackers approached the Imam and asked him to hand over those Christians he was hiding, but he lied to them that there was no Christian in his house.

This unique act saved 262 Christians from being killed in the attack.

More than 100 people, including children, were killed by the alleged pastors.
