THE BLOOD AND TEARS OF CHRISTIANS IN NIGERIA
This article is written as a passionate plea to President Donald Trump, the President of the United States of America; Antonio Guterres, the Secretary General of the United Nations, Chile Eboe Osuji, the Chief Justice of the International Criminal Court and all other civil rights and justice organizations all over the world, to demand for speedy justice for the cruel and unjust terrorism and Christian genocide perpetrated by the top two of the world's deadliest terror group – Boko Haram and Fulani Herdsmen in Nigeria.
There have been over 6,000 deaths of Christians by Boko Haram and the Fulani herdsmen since 2015 and this figure puts Nigeria as the second most violent nation for persecuted Christians. While we may recount the deaths of priests and catechists (15th December, 2017/ 25th April, 2018), the Reverend Fathers (2nd August, 2019), the early morning street preacher (9th July, 2016), the pastors and local church leaders(January,2020), thousands of Christian soldiers deployed to die (2011-2020), the Christian traditional rulers (2019), the recently beheaded official of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) (21st January, 2020), those who were killed at the funeral of their loved ones who were also victims (28th July, 2019), and the murdered bride-to-be and her bridal maids (27th December, 2019) the 11 christians beheaded as a revenge for America's killing of ISIS terrorist, Abu Bakr Al-Bagdahdi (25th December, 2019), we also plead on the behalf of thousands others whose names and faces are unknown, who have been defiled, decimated and decapitated in this country just because they believe in Jesus Christ.
Nigeria's President, Muhammadu Buhari, has shown by his reaction to the terrorism and persecution that he is incapable and undetermined to end the genocide and terrorism in the country. The world must now cease to watch from the sidelines and intervene on the war against Christians in Nigeria.
It is not enough that Donald Trump places Nigeria on a watch list or issues a visa ban. It is not enough that the UN verbally condemns the attacks or that the UK debates Nigeria's security situation on the floor of the house, it is enough only when Christians and Muslims can coexist in northern-Nigeria, without fear of death.
This is a passionate appeal to the international community to come to Nigeria's aid.
