Much of the Christian persecution in Nigeria is the result of radical Islamic teaching and activity. Radical groups, such as Boko Haram and Muslim Fulani herdsmen, heavily persecute believers in the northern and Middle Belt regions. Criminal groups engaged in human and drug trafficking also contribute to the persecution. Corruption at all levels made the government ill-equipped to protect Christians from violent attacks. Death, physical injury and loss of property are commonplace, as well as loss of land and livelihood. In northern Nigeria, society as a whole treats Christians as second-class citizens who deserve to be discriminated against and excluded. Christians from Muslim backgrounds also face persecution from their own families who reject and pressure them to renounce Christianity. In the southern part of Nigeria, Christians experience religious freedom. Pray for perseverance and protection for Nigerian Christians.
