The 2023 Persecutors of the Year report from the International Christian Concern (ICC) recently marked Nigeria as the worst place for Christians to live in.
According to report released in November by ICC, it has been highlighted how those 55 targeted attacks that killed 549 Christians made Nigeria the most uninhabitable nation for Christians within the past year.
“Whether the world acknowledges the plight of Nigerian Christians or not, the country has become a burial ground for Christians,” the ICC stated.
“Nigeria is arguably the most dangerous place to be a Christian in the world today. In the North, a very hostile group of Muslim extremists have attacked and devastated the minority population of Christians.”
At the time of this report, the Kaduna State Government has not taken steps to address the issue, and there is a lack of effort from security agencies to uncover the terrorists.
