The Persecution of Christians by Islamic Radicals in Nigeria is Being Ignored
ICC Note: The persecution of Christians in Nigeria continues to escalate dramatically. Christians farmers continue to be targeted because of their religion, being forced to leave their homes and communities.
8/03/2018 Nigeria (ABC.Net) – We’ve heard a lot lately about white South African farmers being killed in farm murders. But another group of African farmers are being killed in far greater numbers and we’ve barely heard a whimper.
What would you think if you heard that there was a group of people, all belonging to one religion, who were being savagely attacked by another group so that they were forced out of their homes?
If whole villages were being destroyed, churches burnt to the ground and hundreds of people including women and children murdered? If the region’s government was doing little to intervene?
