Gyang Pam, a 21years old young man is a native of Yiyoh village, Foron district in Barki Ladi L.G.A of Plateau State. He was shot by the Islamic Fulani terrorist at his home town, Yiyoh village, while on his way back from work. The Fulani terrorists numbering over thirty armed men stormed the Yiyoh villagers at about 12:00 in the afternoon and started shooting and destroying properties while chanting ‘Allahu Akbar,’ meaning Allah is great, and the villagers fled with their wives and children.

More than ten houses were burnt by these Fulani radicals in the attack. While the villagers ran from these attackers, an unknown vehicle which was presumed to be that of the military came and was driving towards the Yiyoh village, the villagers watching from their hidings thought it was the military men that has come to help them, by this time, Gyang who works with a transport company as driver assistance was returning home from work not knowing that the village was already under attack and that the villagers had fled away.

While he walked the way, the supposed military men opened fire at him and Gyang started running and they followed after him and were shooting at him. While Gyang was running, he decided to see the distance between him and the terrorists and probably to know if they were still following him amidst so many thoughts that were running through his mind at that time so, he turned and immediately, one of the bullets went straight into his left eye and busted the eye and he fell down.

After Gyang fell to the ground, the terrorists which were about three fully armed men in the vehicle, stopped and stood there to see if he was yet alive, but the young man had gone into coma an eye witness explained. All efforts to pick him and so as take him to the hospital were abortive because these terrorists kept shooting and no one could get close. After a while, rain started falling and the villagers thought that the rain would have driven the terrorists away, only to discovered that they were still waiting.

The rain which lasted for about two and half hours all fell on Gyang who was bleeding helplessly. The terrorists later left the villager and Gyang was taken to the hospital where he was admitted and given immediate medical cares. Upon his arrival at the hospital and after examinations, Gyang, though still in an unconscious state, is noticed to have sustained a head injury secondary to gunshot. He was to undergo a CT scan to determine the extent of the injury and to know the nature of the surgery he will undergo.

Unfortunately, he could not make it through the surgery because the bullet entered into the head through his eye and damaged most parts of his brain.

Gyang finally died.

A reality they have come to terms with in Northern Nigeria is that it is a continuous battle for survival. And so many question lingering in the minds of people: Who would be the next victim? How long before I loose a limb? Who is going to protect us? Would I ever walk again? When can I go back home? When would my parents come back? Where do I go from here? Just to mention a few.

 Our vision is to aid the Christians who are being persecuted for their faith in Christ, fulfilling the Great Commission, and educating the world about the ongoing persecution of Christians.The Bible says: "Now we who are strong have an obligation to bear the weaknesses of those without strength, and not to please ourselves."
