These stories of Christian persecution in Nigeria is a strong reminder to cherish our religious freedom and realize the violent threat that radical Islam can pose against religious freedom.
Having met and spoken with several men who have migrated from Nigeria to Italy, I find this particularly interesting:
We often think of this kind of violent persecution against Christians occurring in the Middle East, so it can be eye opening to some when learning the opposition facing Christians in northern Nigeria. While some of talked about dividing Nigeria, the northern Islamic dominated area of Nigeria could not afford to cut itself off from the southern Christian dominated area, as it is full of rich resources that it could not do without economically.
Learn more and pray for Nigerians facing Christian persecution.
