Violence towards Nigerian Christian's must stop. They are specifically targeted for their religious beliefs and culture. Pressure must be put on the government of Nigeria to intervene and bring the killers to justice. President Muhammadu Buhari has been the leader since 2015 and this appalling persecution has been left to continue. Please sign and pray for intervention.

"Since the beginning of the year, numerous attacks in Nigeria’s Middle Belt have left over 100 Christians dead and forced a huge number of families to flee for their lives. The Bishops Conference of Nigeria have described the area as “killing fields” due to the increase in violence against the faithful. In the worst atrocity to date, Father Joseph Gor and Father Felix Tyolaha were celebrating early morning Mass at St Ignatius parish, Makurdi diocese, when the extremists struck and started firing at the parishioners indiscriminately. Both priests were killed, along with 17 of the faithful."

Ibid: "Aid to the Church in Need has just rushed through an emergency grant in response to fresh reports that violence by Islamist militants Boko Haram has left 15,000 orphans and 5,000 widows. The £60,000 aid package provides for families in urgent need of food, counselling and schooling. Bishop Oliver Dashe Doeme of Maiduguri has begged ACN for help, describing how Boko Haram has abducted and killed thousands of men, depriving families of fathers and husbands on whom they depend as breadwinners.
On a project assessment trip to Maiduguri, ACN staff met Agnes, 40, a widow and now the sole carer of nine children. She told ACN: “My husband was a builder. He was working outside a house when Boko Haram came and gunned him down. “The terrorists didn’t allow anybody to come and recover the bodies of my husband and his fellow workers.”
