Davou Bulle, his wife, and their 10 children all climbed into the van, exhausted from another full day of work on their family’s farm. He started to pull away but was soon jarred to attention by the sound of gunshots hitting the tires. They were being ambushed!
The Muslim attackers soon aimed their weapons at the driver, in hopes to first kill the Christian “infidel” then kill his entire family. In an attempt to protect his father, son Gyan lunged at the bullets to shield him but the bullets found their way to their intended target killing Davou. Gyan trying to help his father took 14 bullets during the ambush. Davou’s wife Mary was hit in the eye and the jaw.
After the attack, the surviving children ran to the village to alert the police. Mary was taken into surgery immediately, removing two bullets from her eye and jaw. She lost one of her eyes as a result. Son Gyan was also operated on, removing all 14 bullets from his body; miraculously he survived. Davou left behind a wife – his widow Mary – and 10 children.
More than 10,000 Christians have been killed since 1999 in Nigeria and nearly 1,000 homes and churches have been burned down by Muslim radicals, all because of their faith in Jesus Christ.
Each month The Voice of the Martyrs reports on what is happening around the world to our brothers and sisters who are being persecuted for their faith in Jesus Christ.
