Thousands of Christians Murdered by Muslims in Nigeria
Even though Christians are by far the most persecuted group of peoples in the world, persecution and genocide of Christians is rarely reported in the mainstream media. This is bacuase the two primary persecutors - Muslims and Communists - are "protected' classes within leftist idealogy, while Christians are often considered problematic at best, or actually despised at worst. Thus, mainstream journalists usually turn a blind eye to the plight of Christians around the world. A prime example is what is happening in Nigeria.
The Armed Conflict Location and Event Data Project (ACLED), has compiled data for 2018 on the ongoing genocide of Christians in Nigeria. ACLED reported that approximately 1,930 brutal deaths were attributed to Fulani militants in 2018. In addition, Boko Haram was responsible for at least another 550 deaths according to records mainstained by TheReligionofPeace.com (TROP), bringing the total number murdered in the name of Islam in Nigeria in 2018 to at least 2,480. This was a sharp increase over the 1,900 total people killed in 2017 by both Boko Haram and Fulani militants (both groups are Muslim).
According to International Christian Concern (ICC) "Due to ethnic tensions, religious differences, and a lack of economic resources, Fulani attacks against defenseless farmers in largely Christian areas claimed many lives and displaced tens of thousands."
"This, however, does not account for the dozens of villages that were completely razed and the more than 30 churches that were destroyed in Plateau State (of Nigeria) alone, as reported by Rev. Dacholom Datiri, president of the Church of Christ in Nigeria."
The Nigerian government has made little serious effort to address the ongoing genocide of Christians. Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari is a Muslim who has expressed support in the past for the "total implementation of Sharia Law" in Nigeria, despite the country's population being evenly divided between Christians and Muslims.
Below are the largest attacks that took place in 2018 (links to external news sites).
