ICC Note: Boko Haram and other radicals target Christians constantly, forcing them to renounce their faith, killing their loved ones, burning their churches, and persecuting them in many other ways. Unfortunately, Christians in Nigeria do not enjoy the same religious freedoms that other groups have since they are usually attacked because of their faith and do not have the support of their government or authorities either.

Former Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan presented the plight of the Christians in his country before the U.S. House of Representatives’ Sub-Committee on Africa, Global Health, Human Rights and International Organization. The sub-committee’s chairman Christopher Smith issued a statement afterwards, describing their findings after investigating the situation of believers in the African country, Christians in Pakistan reports.
Smith said he and his staff director Greg Simpkins spoke to Christians and Muslims in Nigeria while investigating the struggles of the believers in the country. They also visited religious leaders and the churches that had been targeted in sectarian attacks.
