Nine Christians killed, four churches burned in Nigeria

Boko Haram suspected in rampage in predominantly Christian area

Lagos, Dec. 4 (Open Doors News) — Nine Christians were killed and four Churches burned in two separate Dec. 1 attacks in northeast Nigeria by gunmen suspected to be members of the Boko Haram Islamist group.

FRESH pressure is mounting on the US President Barack Obama and the outgoing US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to designate Nigeria’s Islamist group, Boko Haram, a Foreign Terrorist Organisation (FTO) before the end of Obama’s first term next month.

At the White House, an ambitious effort has been launched by a team of several US groups led by Jubilee Campaign and supported by the Christian Association of Nigerian-Americans (CANAN) to mobilise thousands of Americans to sign a petition addressed to President Obama, demanding the designation.

The Christians Association of Nigeria (CAN) has issued a “final call” to the Federal Government to neutralize the violence against Christians or risk losing the cooperation of the Christian community in its fight against Boko Haram.

Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor, the president of the Christians Association of Nigeria, who made the call was speaking after a meeting with other officials of the association over the latest attack on churches in Nigeria, which happened at the Bayero University in Kano state on Sunday.

Leaders of the Christians Association of Nigeria (CAN) today gave a final warning to President Goodluck Jonathan put an end to the insecurity in the country or face down the the consequences.

Speaking through its president, Reverend Ayo Oristejafor at a press briefing after a high level meeting of the body in Abuja, CAN charged Mr. Jonathan to find a lasting solution to the senseless killings and bombings in the country.
