Nigeria is one of the most dangerous places on Earth to be a Christian as Muslim terrorists are waging an outright war against Christianity.
In the state of Borno in northeastern Nigeria, hardly 2% of the population is Christian yet according to the local Catholic bishop, hundreds of Christians have been murdered and thousands more kidnapped. The government has done little to stop the violence, and those who have not been able to flee for their lives are living in fear of another terrorist attack:
The Christians have been badly affected by this insurgency. For no reason. They are innocent and yet because of their faith, they have suffered severely at the hands of Boko Haram members. Because these sect members after capturing many communities, they will drive our people away. They will send them packing, leaving their ancestral homes. They destroy their animals, their vehicles, their houses. And some of their family members have been killed. Over 500 Catholics have been killed. That is not all of the Christians, just the Catholics that have been killed in this insurgency. And some of our youth have been taken away. Because of this, our people are really devastated. They are traumatized.
Obviously, we are human beings and so you should expect that that will definitely taint the relationship between the Christians and the Muslims. When Boko Haram members capture some communities, the Christians will run away but some Muslims will stay back and point out the houses of Christians to Boko Haram members. They will be burning down those houses and burning down our church structures. So when our people have come back, they are not happy. Another war could begin between them and those Muslims. Yet they have been working hard telling them that what you have to do is offer forgiveness. As a leader, as a church minister, I also do my bit by going close to the Muslim leaders, the emirs, the chiefs, the shehu, and make sure that I reach out to them, visit them and relate to them well. Then our followers will be able to see that if their leaders can come together, then they, too, should also come together for the common good, our country and our society. (source)
