Metro Nigerian Christians Allegedly Persecuted by Boko Haram Terrorists



Although they are not being target specifically by the Boko Haram sect, Nigerian Christians in northeastern states are reportedly paying a heavy price at the hands of the terrorists as they seek to establish an Islamic caliphate in the country, Yahoo! News reports:

"Christians in the town are really in a terrible situation, a moment of great persecution," said Father Gideon Obasogie, the spokesman for the Roman Catholic Diocese of Maiduguri, which stretches from Yobe, through Borno to Adamawa.

"Christian men were caught and beheaded, the women were forced to become Muslim and were taken as wives to the terrorists.

"Some Boko Haram sympathisers around the town identified Christian homes to be occupied and the Christians hiding were also identified and killed. Strict Sharia law had been promulgated."

Schools, Christian churches and religious buildings have been repeatedly attacked and razed during the five-year insurgency.
