Retired Nigerian Pastor, Rev. Jacob Kwiza, Has Throat Slit by Islamists

Muslim radicals in Nigeria have murdered a Christian pastor by slitting his throat.

Rev. Jacob Kwiza was a retired pastor with the Church of Christ in Nigeria. Last week, Islamists found him in the Gwoza hills, about 90 miles from Maiduguri, according to witnesses who fled the scene.

Muslims ordered the pastor to renounce his Christian faith and convert to Islam. When he repeatedly refused, they slit his throat.

Islamic extremists also torched at least four churches in the Gwoza hills in the past week. The Muslim terrorist group Boko Haram murdered at least 16 high school students in Maiduguri, capital of Borno state, because they were studying Western education.

The gunmen mowed them down at their desks.
