In Nigeria, 350 Nigerian Christians were massacred in the first two months of 2020 by Fulani Muslim militants. Over 11,500 Christians have been murdered since June 2015. Four to five million Christians are displaced. 2000 churches were destroyed, but the Western media is silent.
GenocideWatch Nigeria has become a killing field of defenseless Christians. Reliable sources show that between 11,500 and 12,000 Christians have been massacred since June 2015 when the Buhari Government of Nigeria came to power. These statistics are based on careful records kept by church groups that include the names of victims and dates of their murders.
Jihadist Fulani Herdsmen accounted for 7,400 murders of Christians. Boko Haram committed 4000 killings of Christians. ‘Highway Bandits’ who separated Christians from Muslims on buses and then killed the Christians committed over 200 murders.
Fulani Jihadists are now the world’s deadliest terrorist group. Five Nigerian Christians are massacred every day by Fulani and Boko Haram Jihadists.
One hundred percent of the 7,400 murders by Jihadist Fulani Herdsmen since June 2015 were Christians. Fulani militias wipe out whole Christian villages, but they leave Muslim villages unharmed.
4000 Christians were killed by Boko Haram, a majority of the 6000 civilians massacred by Boko Haram/Islamic State in West Africa (ISWAP) since June 2015.
The Nigerian Human Rights NGO Intersociety stated in March 2019 that ‘no fewer than 2400 defenseless Christians were murdered by Jihadist Fulani Herdsmen in 2018. In 2019, there were between 1000 and 1,200 Christian deaths.’
In all, no fewer than 10,475 Christians were murdered by Jihadists since June 2015. Fulani Jihadists accounted for about 62% or 7,400 deaths. Nigeria’s security forces (Army, Air Force and Police) were responsible for 1,050 Christian deaths.
All the deaths occurred outside the law and were perpetrated in gross violation of international human rights and humanitarian laws. To date, the perpetrators of these heinous crimes against humanity have remained on the prowl.
