A Muslim convert to Christianity narrowly escaped death when he was attacked by a Muslim fanatic on September 15 in the city of Jos, central Nigeria. It was around 5 p.m. on Monday in my store, Mr. Lucky Kadri told Compass from his hospital bed, where he is recovering from injuries. I decided to pack up my things because it was already getting late. As I bent down, I felt a blow on my head and I fell down. My assailant was tearing at my stomach with a sharp object. Before I knew it, I saw my intestines spilling out. Police arrested Kadris assailant. I have not seen him before, but I have been told that he confessed that he was sent to kill me because I left Islam to become a Christian, he told Compass. A Christian since 1984, Kadri said Muslim leaders regularly visited his shop to convince him to renounce Christianity and return to Islam. He believes his refusal to recant provoked the attack.
