Nigerian Military Unconcerned About Christian Attacks in the Country

In recent weeks, there have been growing concerns over the Nigerian military’s apparent lack of action in response to attacks on Christians in the country. According to reports, the military has been turning a blind eye to these attacks, which have resulted in the deaths of many innocent people.

UK-based Release International has heard claims on the military folding their arms while Christians are persecuted and killed in the country. Release International has announced its launching of a 3-month campaign calling for prayers for Christians in Nigeria.

Many have criticized the military’s inaction, saying that it is not fulfilling its duty to protect all citizens of the country, regardless of their religion. The attacks, which have been carried out by armed groups, have been occurring with increasing frequency in recent months, and many fear that the situation could escalate into a full-blown religious conflict.

According to Release International CEO, Paul Robinson, “Across north and central Nigeria attacks on predominantly Christian villages are taking place with shocking frequency”.

“Militants are destroying homes and burning churches. They have killed thousands and forced tens of thousands to flee. What we are witnessing is religious and ethnic cleansing aimed at eradicating Christians and seizing their land.” 

“The situation is underreported in the mainstream media and the Nigerian government seems powerless to intervene.”

“We are calling Christians in the UK to commit to praying for Nigeria and its Christian population.”

The Archbishop of Jos, Benjamin Kwashi, is a partner of Release International. He says: ‘I’ve done far more funerals in the last 20 years than I have done naming ceremonies, or weddings put together. I’m a grieving pastor. This violence is happening under the nose of a federal government.’

‘Christians are going to run out of this country. They’re going to leave – in droves. They will not wait for the persecution that will happen.’

One of the most high-profile attacks on Christians occurred this month when armed militants attacked a church in the city of Kaduna, killing over 27 people and injuring many more. Despite the clear evidence of the attack, the military has yet to take any action against those responsible, leaving many to wonder whether the government is truly committed to protecting its citizens.

The situation in Nigeria is complex, and there are many factors at play, including long-standing religious tensions, poverty, and political instability. However, it is clear that the Nigerian government must do more to protect its citizens, and to ensure that all Nigerians can practice their religion without fear of violence or persecution.

The international community has expressed concern over the situation, with many calling on the Nigerian government to take swift and decisive action to address the issue.

Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
