Muslims React With Violence to New President

ICC Note

Muslims show aggression towards Christians as Nigeria elects a Christian President. Over 300 churches have been burnt to the ground as a result of the election. “Hundreds of people have been killed, including Christians and Muslims. They even attacked and killed and destroyed the property of Muslims who voted for the Christian candidate.”

 05/20/2011-Nigeria (OneNewsNow) Mass graves are reportedly being filled with Christians after new violence in Northern Nigeria, which directly relates to the election of a new president.

After a Christian named Goodluck Jonathan was elected president, Muslims in the northern part of the country openly attacked Christians. Jonathan Rocha of International Christian Concern reports that they are only now learning the extent of the destruction.

 “Hundreds of people have been killed, including Christians and Muslims. They even attacked and killed and destroyed the property of Muslims who voted for the Christian candidate.”

“The government has deployed the security and they also promised to investigate the latest violence — and we hope they will take measures to ensure that these things will not occur in this situation because it’s one of the bloodiest times for the people in the northern part of Nigeria,” Rocha states.
 

International Christian Concern has recently launched a drive to raise funds to help feed refugees until they can return home and rebuild their lives.
