More than 1,000 Nigerian Christians were killed in 2019 by Muslim extremists from the Fulani tribe, according to the U.K.-based Humanitarian Aid Relief Trust. The group estimates that there have been 6,000 Christians killed since 2015 and up to 12,000 displaced from their homes. The atrocities have happened mainly in Plateau, Kaduna and Taraba states in the north.

Nigeria's President Muhammadu Buhari, who is Muslim, has entrusted all security forces into the hands of northern Muslims. And Buhari is doing little to respond to the violence.

Recent attacks by the Fulani herdsmen, as well as violent kidnappings, rapes and church-burnings by Boko Haram, an Islamic terrorist group, have made Nigeria one of the most dangerous places on earth to be a Christian. Christians have been shot as well as burned to death.

Nevertheless, the mass media and governments have paid little or no attention to the massive killings in Nigeria.

This petition aims to raise public awareness and media coverage of this issue, and asking international organisations to grant protection to the Nigerian Christians. 

To those who hold Christian beliefs please pray that help from international forces will come to counter the terrorists. Pray for provision of the families affected by the violence, as many can no longer farm because their villages or their farmlands have been occupied by invaders. Pray that God will comfort all those who mourn for the loss of loved ones and family.

2 Thessalonians 3:3-5 
3 But the Lord is faithful, and he will strengthen you and protect you from the evil one. 4 We have confidence in the Lord that you are doing and will continue to do the things we command. 5 May the Lord direct your hearts into God's love and Christ's perseverance.
