Christians in Nigeria live in a constant state of terror, fearing abduction, torture, and murder by radical Islamic jihadists.
Boko Haram, the jihadist army and Nigerian arm of ISIS, has slaughtered 2,000 innocent Christians. It burns down Christian churches. One survivor stated, “I saw bodies in the street. Children and women, some were crying for help.” It even poses as preachers to slaughter Christian congregants.
