TransWorld Radio Calls Attention to Persecuted Christians in Nigeria

Crises in Afghanistan and Haiti may dominate mainstream news right now, but equally dire circumstances in Nigeria demand attention as killings and kidnappings plague northern Nigeria.

“Visualize in your mind a small building and the doors of that building being thrown open, and a group of people coming in, breaking up a church service or a gathering of believers,” TransWorld Radio (TWR) President/CEO Lauren Libby says.

“How in the world would you react to that? What would you pray about in that situation? Because that’s what they (Nigerian Christians) face almost every week.”

The Nigerian terrorist group Boko Haram began its reign of terror in 2009. Then came the Islamic State. Earlier this month, Fulani herdsmen surpassed Islamic terrorist groups as the greatest threat to Nigerian Christians.

Sadly, mass murders are increasingly common. A few days ago, persecutors went house-to-house searching for victims in Plateau state; they shot and killed 37 believers.
