Islamic terrorists are slaughtering thousands of Christians – killing pregnant women and children and raping girls – in Nigeria in a bid to force sharia law on the country, says a Nigeria-born Roman Catholic priest.

“They are supplied with AK-47s, dangerous weapons, and swords … and they move into Christian villages and communities,” said Father Vitus Ikeme, a Nigerian Catholic priest now living in a small Atlantic Canadian city. “Just last month, they went into a church, killed two priests, cut kids and 15 members of the church.”

Christian church leaders are calling on the international community, particularly the United Nations, to step in and bring peace to the impoverished and war-torn country.

“It is a kind of jihad war going on in Nigeria,” said Father Ikeme.

U.S. President Donald Trump raised the ire of critics in April when he expressed sympathy for the plight of Christian farmers being targeted by Fulani herdsmen, the majority of whom are Muslim, after meeting with Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari.

“We’re deeply concerned by religious violence in Nigeria, including the burning of churches, and the killing and persecution of Christians.  It’s a horrible story,” said Trump.
