ICC Note: Brutal attacks targeting Christians are still ongoing in Nigeria despite military presence in the affected areas. Even though Christians are brutally persecuted in Nigeria by Islamic radicals, the government has not taken any real action to protect them or even bring justice. Many Christian villagers have had to defend themselves and their families, while the government neglects to prosecute the perpetrators.

12/6/2017 Nigeria (Christian Today) – Nigerian Christians are accusing their government of only ‘paying lip service’ to promises to protect churches from Fulani herdsmen launching attacks.

Rev Solomon Dalyop, leader of the Church of Christ in Nations (COCIN) Christian network and in charge of the Riyom area in central Nigeria, said the multiple attacks on Christians were ongoing despite increased military presence in the region, according to World Watch Monitor.

He said the soldiers were not being effective because ‘their paymaster, the federal government, is only paying lip service without serious political will to end the crisis’.

It comes after at least four people died when Fulani herdsman opened fire on miners in Jol village in the Riyom district of Plateau state.
