The executioners gave a chilling warning to other Christians before shooting the men dead

Christians are among five Nigerian men to have been executed in Nigeria by Islamist extremists.

The deaths were recorded in a 35-second video posted to YouTube by Eons Intelligence before being removed.

It showed the men blindfolded and kneeling in front of five militants standing behind them holding AK-47 rifles.

One of the executioners then spoke to the camera before the executions were carried out to warn other Christians that they would be next if they did not stop sharing the Gospel and convert to Islam.

“This is a message to all those being used by infidels to convert Muslims to Christianity,” one of the executioners said, according to Morning Star News.

“We want you out there to understand that those of you being used to convert Muslims to Christianity are only being used for selfish purposes.

“And that is the reason whenever we capture you, they don’t care to rescue you or work towards securing your release from us; and this is because they don’t need you or value your lives. We therefore, call on you to return to Allah by becoming Muslims. We shall continue to block all routes [highways] you travel.

“If you don’t heed our warning, the fate of these five individuals will be your fate.”

After he finished his message, the five men were shot dead.
