Compass Direct News has revealed that Islamic militants in Somalia this week killed a woman who led an underground Christian movement in the war-torn country, reports Dan Wooding, founder of ASSIST Ministries.
Sources told Compass that a leader of Islamic extremist al Shabaab militia in Lower Juba identified only as Sheikh Arbow shot to death 46-year-old Mariam Muhina Hussein at 2 p.m. on Monday (Sept. 28) in Marerey village after discovering she had six Bibles. Marerey is eight kilometers (five miles) from Jilib, part of the neighboring Middle Juba region.
“Local sources said that on Sunday (Sept. 27) Arbow sent his wife to the house of Hussein, a Somali Bantu, to confirm the presence of the Bibles,” said the Compass Direct story.
“Pretending to be interested in Christianity, the militia leader’s wife confirmed the existence of the Bibles. The next day, Arbow arrived at Hussein’s house and, in a friendly manner, claimed that he wanted to check something in the Bible.”
Knowing only that Arbow was a fellow ethnic Somali Bantu and having met his wife the previous day, Hussein innocently gave one to him, a source told Compass. Arbow then told her that he was looking for “Christians who have defiled the Islamic religion,” and he ordered her to get the other Bibles. Upon receiving the Bibles, sources said, Arbow fired three bullets at Hussein, who died instantly.
