ICC Note:

According to Raymond Ibrahim, author of “Muslim Persecution of Christians,” Nigeria is one of the “worst places for Christians.” Boko Haram, a radical Islamic insurgency bent on establishing a separate Islamic state in northeast Nigeria, has waged a campaign of terror against the West African nation’s northern Christians for years, killing thousand and destroying hundreds of churches.

02/02/2015 Nigeria (Christianity Today) – The author of a monthly report on Christian persecution in various countries has ruled Nigeria as one of the least favourable nations for Christians to be in.

Raymond Ibrahim pens the monthly report “Muslim Persecution of Christians”, which has chronicled instances of persecution against Christians in multiple countries since July 2011.

The “Muslim Persecution of Christians” reported is published by former US Ambassador to the UN John R. Bolton’s Gatestone Institute.

Mr Ibrahim told the Washington Times that more than 1,000 churches have been destroyed in a four-year period by the extremist group Boko Haram. In addition, he revealed, the group laid 200 churches to waste from August to October alone as it waged a campaign of terror in the northeastern region of Nigeria.

Given the magnitude of persecution directed against Christians in Nigeria, Mr Ibrahim called it “one of the worst” places for Christianity.
