- The president of the Nigerian bishops’ conference has denounced the Islamist terrorist group Boko Haram and called upon European Christians to urge their governments to intervene on behalf of Nigerian Christians.
- Boko Haram “is a group that intends to replace the Constitution with Islamic law in order to forcefully convert the people to Islam,” said Archbishop Ignatius Kaigama of Jos. “They initially began to attack the government, its institutions and security agencies, then initiated attacks on churches. They want to eliminate churches because they educate and promote culture.”
