"Stop protecting the interests of the powerful in Nigeria! Don't empower them to do evil!"
Nigerian advocates for peace and religious freedom travelled to London in July to make their voices heard at the 2022 International Ministerial Conference for Freedom of Religion and Belief.
Three human rights organisations – Christian Solidarity International (CSI), Humanitarian Aid Relief Trust (HART), and the International Organisation for Peacebuilding and Social Justice (PSJ) - have released a new joint report about the situation in Nigeria’s Middle Belt.
The report, entitled “Breaking Point in Central Nigeria? Terror and Mass Displacement in the Middle Belt,” was based on a joint visit to Nigeria, led by Baroness Caroline Cox, in late February-early March of this year.
Caroline Cox, an independent member of the House of Lords, and Dr. John Eibner, the president of Christian Solidarity International, have written an open letter to Luka Binniyat, the Christian journalist imprisoned for his coverage of atrocities against Christians in Nigeria's southern Kaduna State. "Thank you for standing so boldly in solidarity with the victims of atrocity crimes," they wrote. "You are an inspiration. We hope and pray that we will be able to meet you soon in freedom."
