ROME, Italy — Nigeria is the most harmful place in the world to be a Christian, in accordance to a report on Christian persecution by International Christian Concern (ICC).
In ICC’s 2023 “Persecutors of the World” report, Nigeria is billed as the world’s high oppressor due to its “endemic” anti-Christian violence.

Radical Muslim terror teams reminiscent of Boko Haram and Fulani militants have waged a “20-year genocide against Christians in Nigeria,” the report declared, and as a end result “Christian men, women, and children are brutally kidnapped, tortured, and killed every week in Nigeria.”
In simply 128 days of 2022, spanning from March 4 to July 6, a whole of 55 separate assaults resulted in the deaths of 549 Christians, ICC reported.
The adoption of Sharia prison regulation in 12 northern states has exacerbated the ongoing persecution of Christians in the area, the textual content said, and in the meantime the Nigerian authorities and far of the worldwide neighborhood “continue to deny religious motivation behind ongoing violence, despite the clear targeting of Christians and churches.”
“Once again, Nigeria’s Christian community is suffering at the hands of radical Fulani militants,” ICC president Jeff King famous. “And once again, rather than intervening, the Nigerian government continues to turn a blind eye to the violence, aiding and abetting the ongoing genocide.”
“No longer can this trend of violence be dismissed as a complicated, regional conflict over land rights,” King added. “The government’s inaction on the matter is inexcusable and the violence will only worsen unless the international community steps in.”

The principal driver of Christian persecution in Nigeria is radical Islam and, in accordance to ICC, the three important perpetrators of persecution are Boko Haram, Fulani militants, and Islamic conservative communities.
While Boko Haram has killed tens of hundreds of individuals, largely Christians, Fulani militants working in Nigeria’s Middle Belt “have killed more Christians in the past several years than Boko Haram and have displaced millions of Christian farmers.”
To add insult to damage, in 2021 the U.S. State Department eliminated Nigeria from its record of Countries of Particular Concern (CPC) regardless of unabated violence and atrocities in opposition to Christians.
“This lack of designation essentially indicates to Nigeria that the U.S. approves of all its actions,” the ICC famous. “Whether the U.S. acknowledges the plight of Nigerian Christians or not, the fact remains the same: Nigeria has become a burial ground for believers of the Christian faith.”

In a assertion released in November 2021, the bipartisan U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF) mentioned it was “appalled” at the choice of the Biden administration to take away Nigeria from the record of CPCs.
USCIRF mentioned it was “unexplainable that the U.S. Department of State did not redesignate Nigeria as a Country of Particular Concern (CPC) and treated it as a country with no severe religious freedom violations.”
“While the State Department took steps forward on some designations, USCIRF is especially displeased with the removal of Nigeria from its CPC designation, where it was rightfully placed last year,” mentioned USCIRF Chair Nadine Maenza at the time.
