Islamist Genocide Against Nigerian Christians

Islamist Genocide Against Nigerian Christians

Muhammadu Buhari, who Barack Obama helped become President of Nigeria continues to fuel the "genocide" of Christians in his nation, according to Nigerian Christian leaders.

Father Valentine Obinna, a priest of the Aba diocese of Nigeria, attributed the ongoing slaughter of Christians to the planned "Islamization of Nigeria" under the Muslim President: "People read the handwriting on the wall. It's obvious. It's trying to make the whole country a Muslim country”.

Nigeria is roughly half Muslim, half Christian. Between 2011 and 2015, Boko Haram jihadis  terrorized and slaughtered thousands of Christians, particularly those living in the Muslim-majority north.

In 2015, Nigeria's Muslims finally got what they wanted: a Muslim president in the person of Muhammadu Buhari. The violence has since worsened. Muslim Fulani herdsmen — the ethnic tribe from which Buhari hails — joined and even surpassed Boko Haram in their slaughter of Christians.

Between June 2017 and June 2018 alone, Muslim Fulani slaughtered approximately 9,000 Christians and destroyed at least a thousand churches. In just the first six months of this year, 52 lethal terror attacks targeting Christian villages occurred.

When some Christian farmers in Adamawa state dared to fight back, the Muslim President even sent the air force to bomb them, killing hundreds more.

The West’s liberal media often deny the ongoing genocide, or downplay its Islamist roots.

As Sister Monica Chikwe recently explained, however, "It's tough to tell Nigerian Christians this isn't a religious conflict since what they see are Fulani fighters clad entirely in black, chanting 'Allahu Akbar!' and screaming 'Death to Christians.'"
