More than 100 Christians have been killed in the Nigerian state of Plateau by Muslim extremists in recent weeks, according to Compass Direct News.
    
The killings have been described as 'hit and run-style' guerilla attacks that have eliminated entire families in some cases.

Early last month In the Christian community of Vwang Kogot, 15 people were killed when Islamic militants attacked the village.

"After the soldiers and the Muslims left, we rushed into the place to see the destruction they did," village resident Markus Mamba recalled about the Sept. 9 attack.

"Among them was a pregnant woman who died with a child in her womb, bringing the number of deaths to 15 persons," he told Compass.

"We also observed that the victims died from gun and machete wounds," he said.

Survivors say they believe Islamic extremists are recruiting nomadic Muslims to carry out the attacks.
