Nigerian Christians attacked every Sunday in February

Violence against Christians continues unabated in northern Nigeria. Attackers burnt down a church and two homes in Kaduna state on Sunday, International Christian Concern reports.

It’s the latest episode of an unrelenting crisis. Believers were attacked every Sunday in February; Fulani herdsmen led the charge in most cases. They’re now the biggest threat to Nigerian Christians, claims the United Kingdom’s All-Party Parliamentary Group for International Freedom or Belief, surpassing Boko Haram and the Islamic State.

Earlier this month, the United States Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF) released a report describing Nigeria’s Islamist extremists as “some of the deadliest and most formidable jihadist groups in the world today.” More Nigeria headlines here.
