Description

Last year, more Christians were killed in Nigeria than the rest of the world combined, according to data from the charity Open Doors. And attacks against believers have only increased in 2022, culminating in a horrific atrocity in June when at least 40 worshippers were killed during a Pentecost service. Yet even as the shootings, bombings and kidnappings increase, Nigeria’s government, the international community and the global church seem strangely unconcerned and mostly inactive. Why is the Nigerian Church under such persecution, and what factors are behind the recent rise in attacks? What can be done to stop it, and how can Christians elsewhere in the world speak up for their brothers and sisters risking their lives to go to church? This week we’re joined by two Nigerian experts, Ayo Adedoyin and Khataza Gondwe, to tackle the urgent question of persecution in Nigeria.
