Islamist militant groups in Nigeria targeting Christians to provoke religious war [#NigeriaPersecution #ChristianPersecution] 02/27
Islamist militant groups in Nigeria have begun targeting Christians in an attempt to provoke a religious war according to the information minister.
Islamist insurgents in Nigeria have killed around 35,000 people and displaced at least two million in the past decade, driven first by Boko Haram and more recently by its offshoot, the Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP).
According to Information Minister Lai Mohammed, jihadist groups in the northeast of the country have now adopted a “deliberate policy of attacking Christians.”
