A 2020 report has revealed that the United Nations (UN), is as much to blame for the killings of Christians in Nigeria for their failure to take action when informed of the sad situation.
According to the report which was first published by Fox News, A Christian based organization, Christian Solidarity International (CSI), had warned that the conditions for genocide exist in Nigeria, and called on permanent members of the U.N. Security Council to take heed, but they never did.
Rev. Johnnie Moore, in a new book he co-authored, “The Next Jihad: Stop the Christian Genocide in Africa,” revealed that Christian communities have been decimated by terrorists in parts of Nigeria – and most of the persecution happening in the shadows.
“Thousands of churches have been torched, children massacred, pastors beheaded, and homes and fields set ablaze by the tens of thousands, with people being targeted for their Christian faith alone,” he said.
The Christian Solidarity International (CSI), also warned of a possible genocide unfolding in Nigeria. The warning underscored that “the conditions for genocide exist in Nigeria, with Christians, non-violent Muslims, and adherents of tribal religions being particularly vulnerable,” and called on the permanent members of the U.N. Security Council to take heed. But the cry fell on deaf ears, and the level of persecution is documented to be getting worse.
The report says more than 1,200 Nigerian Christians are estimated to have been slaughtered in the first six months of 2020 and in excess of 11,000 murdered over the past five years – with scores still unaccounted for. They are being targeted from two sides.
International Christian Concern (ICC) points out the figures are likely far greater, with upwards of 50-70,000 Christians dead over the past decade.
“In the first half of 2020, there were only six days that did not have a violent incident caused by extremist groups,” ICC’s President Jeff King said. “At least 400 violent attacks took place, meaning that there was an average of two violent events every day throughout those months,” the report added.
