Genocide in Nigeria

Genocide in Nigeria.

The death toll of Christians killed in Nigeria stands at more than 6,000 since the start of 2018 – a five fold increase since 2015. The West has failed to confront the problem.

The situation is summarised by the National Christian Elders Forum in Nigeria in a statement on May 2nd 2018:

“It is clear to the Christian Elders that JIHAD has been launched in Nigeria by the Islamists of northern Nigeria led by the Fulani ethnic group [the “herdsmen”]. This Jihad is based on the Doctrine of Hate taught in Mosques and Islamic Madrasas in northern Nigeria as well as the supremacist ideology of the Fulani. Using both conventional (violent) Jihad, and stealth (civilization) Jihad, the Islamists of northern Nigeria seem determined to turn Nigeria into an Islamic Sultanate and replace Liberal Democracy with Sharia as the National Ideology. The object of course, is to supplant the Constitution with Sharia as the source of legislation. The current 1999 Constitution is plagued with dual conflicting ideology of Democracy and Sharia. There are certain values which are non-negotiable in a pluralistic society and it seems the advocates of the Caliphate do not respect this. A dual-ideology-driven Nigeria cannot be the Nigeria of our dream. We want a Nigeria, where citizens are treated equally before the law at all levels…. Bearing in mind that Christians constitute over 50% of the Nigerian population, the goal of the Islamists is bound to create serious conflicts which if not checked is capable of escalating into another civil war. Already, the Islamists are murdering Christians with impunity and destroying vulnerable Christian places of worship and communities at an alarming and inhuman rate.”

One thought on “Genocide in Nigeria”

  1. May God send protection for those Christians living in Nigeria facing persecution and that the angels surround their homes and places of worship. May God give them endurance in faith and never ceasing prayer to the Lord Jesus. I pray the persecutors come to know Christ as the perfect living sacrifice and begin to spread love not hate. In Jesus’ name Amen
