Members of the Muslim jihadist group Boko Haram are vowing to “eradicate Christianity” in Nigeria.
Reports coming out of Nigeria over the past several days show that the group whose name means “Western education is evil” is launching a new terror campaign aimed at killing Christians and Jews in northern Nigeria.
The Nigerian news site Bikya Masr reports that the jihadi group has declared war on all Christians living in northern Nigeria.
“Boko Haram has already killed hundreds. Since Christmas alone, the group has martyred about 100 Christians in northern Nigeria,” Racho said.
“They think they have not met their goals for eradicating Christians,” Racho said. “They are prepared for more bloodshed.”
Racho adds that ICC is angered by the developments.
“We are very outraged. How can a country like Nigeria with all of its resources, its oil resources, security, military and all the resources. How could that kind of country fail to protect its innocents from these kinds of attacks?” Racho said.
“Boko Haram has been able to successfully attack Christians without being stopped and it’s just outrageous!” Racho said. “It’s unacceptable!”
“We are really concerned about the continued attacks against Christians in northern Nigeria,” Racho said.
Racho is calling on Christians in the United States and other countries to act.
“I urge Christians around the world to contact their governments and ask them to get Nigeria to protect its citizens,” Racho said.
