Worthy Christian News » Is Sectarian War stewing in Nigeria?

By Joseph DeCaro, Worthy News Correspondent

JOS, NIGERIA (Worthy News)– Since Nigeria's government has proved itself incapable of protecting the country's Christians, the militant Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta has pledged to protect them by targeting Islamic institutions with retaliatory violence.

Last year, almost 70 percent of all Christians killed worldwide were murdered in Nigeria, but if sectarian warfare breaks out in the African nation, Nigeria may become the deadliest place on earth to be a Christian, according to International Christian Concern.

Many of the more than 900 Nigerian Christians killed in 2012 died horribly at the hands of Islamic militants from Boko Haram. In response, MEND announced in April that it would begin bombing mosques and assassinating clerics unless Boko Haram stops its attacks.

ICC reports that MEND might call off any planned retaliation if the Christian Association of Nigeria asks it to, but to date, CAN has remained silent.

And while Nigeria's federal government attempts to avoid any further violence by offering Boko Haram total amnesty in exchange for peace, Haram's leadership said it would reject that deal because, in its eyes, Haram's members have done nothing wrong!
