Nigerian Elections – Stop the Attacks against Christians, Mr President

Feb 28, 2019 by

from Release International:

As Nigeria re-elects President Buhari, Release International urges: ‘Protect your Christians, Mr President. Stop the attacks from the twin menaces of Boko Haram and armed Fulani herdsmen.’

Nigeria has re-elected President Muhammadu Buhari to govern his nation for a second term. As attacks continue against Christians in the north, Release International believes the president’s number one priority must be to protect his nation’s vulnerable Christian communities.

Terror index

The Global Terrorism Index ranks Nigeria as the third most terrorised country for the fourth consecutive year. Between them, Boko Haram and Fulani militants have killed tens of thousands and driven millions from their homes.

‘They have killed with impunity, and that impunity must stop,’ says Paul Robinson, the CEO of Release, which supports persecuted Christians around the world.

Release warns of increasing attacks against Christians by heavily armed Fulani militants, along with continuing assaults by Boko Haram terrorists – previously declared defeated by President Buhari.
