The religious persecution of Christians in Nigeria is teetering on genocide, religious leaders and foreign policy analysts caution in a desperate bid for the international community to take urgent action.
More than 1,200 Nigerian Christians are estimated to have been slaughtered in the first six months of 2020 and in excess of 11,000 murdered over the past five years – with scores still unaccounted for.
International Christian Concern (ICC) points out the figures are likely far greater, with upwards of 50-70,000 Christians dead over the past decade. https://www.foxnews.com/world/the-next-jihad-the-silent-killing-of-nigerias-christians-poses-challenges-for-next-administration
Heavily armed jihadis appear in the dead of night, attack house after house, breaking down doors, shouting Allahu akbar. They shoot the elderly and able-bodied men. They rape, mutilate, and murder women. They kidnap young boys and girls. They torch houses, schools, and churches. Murderous incidents are acted out with accelerating frequency, perpetrated primarily by two Islamic terror groups—Boko Haram and Fulani jihadis.https://providencemag.com/2020/04/world-ignoring-christian-genocide-nigeria/
