The current US administration has removed Nigeria from an annual list of religious freedom violators. The list released by the State Department examines the status of religious freedom in every country in the world and designates the worst violators as a “Country of Particular Concern,” which means they are guilty of “particularly severe violations of religious freedom.”
“Nigeria was considered a Country of Particular Concern in the State Department reports of 2020 and 2019. However, Nigeria was missing in the State Department’s 2021 report, which was released recently. The annual report is required under a 1998 law. Christian groups and religious liberty watchdogs criticized the exclusion of Nigeria, saying thousands of Christians have been killed as the country’s security forces have refused to protect them.
John Eibner, president of the Christian Solidarity International (CSI), said, “Removing this largely symbolic sign of concern is a brazen denial of reality and indicates that the U.S. intends to pursue its interests in western Africa through an alliance with Nigeria’s security elite, at the expense of Christians and other victims of widespread sectarian violence, especially in the country’s predominantly Christian Middle Belt region.” Critics noted that the report was released shortly before Secretary of State, Antony Blinken visited Nigeria.
CSI said Boko Haram and Fulani jihadist militias have killed thousands of Christians, including 31 who were slaughtered on September 26. Millions have also been displaced according to CSI. On November 17, Eibner wrote Secretary of State, Antony Blinken, asserting that Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari is “unable or unwilling to fulfill its most basic responsibility – the provision of security for its citizens against violence.” Further, Eibner noted that Nigerian security forces detained journalist Luka Binniyat after he criticized the government on the issue of religious liberty. Jeff King, president of International Christian Concern, said he is “troubled by Nigeria’s omission as a CPC.”
Let us be mindful to pray for our Christian brethren in Nigeria, that God would be their defense in this difficult hour. Also let us remember to pray for the leaders in our nation that they would have compassion and stand with our persecuted brethren in Nigeria, and not put foreign policy interests above the safety of God’s people. The Bible says, “Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these, my brethren, ye have done it unto me.” (Matt. 25:40). Amen!
