    MUSLIM RIOTERS IN NIGERIA KILL PROMINENT PASTOR, 2 FAMILY MEMBERS Rioting in Nigeria's Plateau state last week has claimed the life of a prominent pastor and two members of his family. Bitrus Manjang, vice president of the Church of Christ, Nigeria was murdered on Dec. 12 in his hometown of Riyom, about 30 miles from Jos. Manjang, 69, was gunned down by a rioting Muslim mob as he stepped from his car after parking in his garage. Also killed in the attack were his daughter-in-law and 6-year-old grandson. Manjang had just returned from a series of church meetings in Jos when a mob of Islamic militants entered his village at 5 p.m. Five other people were killed, and at least a dozen were hospitalized with injuries. Gary Lane of Voice of the Martyrs (VOM) said the attack is indicative of a pattern that is likely to continue. "Radical Muslims in Nigeria want to impose sharia (Islamic law), not only on the 12 states of Nigeria that have already enacted it, but they want to impose it on the other states, and these are Christian areas. The one state that they are particularly targeting at this time is Plateau state." In spite of the dangers, believers are continuing their work. "Church buildings are being destroyed, and Christians and their pastors . . . are being targeted and gunned down, but that isn't stopping the growth of the church," Land said. "The church in Nigeria is growing more than ever. But we're losing some good people. We're losing some strong leaders -- those who are standing up to the imposition of sharia law."
