Kenya, June 14, 2017: Elly Ojiema, a Christian teacher from the village of Fafi in Garissa, north-east Kenya, was murdered by Al Shabaab militants last Wednesday night (14 June). Local Somali Muslims warned the Christian community that an attack was imminent and around 9pm on 14 June, armed men entered the school compound. Barnabas Fund’s project partner in Garissa reported that “They found Elly under the bed and shot his leg, dragged him out and killed him by cutting his throat.” Another Christian teacher who was also in the compound escaped.

The Somali-based Islamist group, Al Shabaab, has repeatedly targeted Christians in north-east Kenya. In October 2016, twelve believers were murdered at a guest house in Mandera. Most infamously, in April 2015, 148 people were killed when Al Shabaab attacked Garissa University and singled out Christians for execution. Last month (May 2017), Al Shabaab released a video showing a militant “graduation ceremony” which encouraged attacks on Kenyan Christians.
