Nigeria is a federal country with Christian majorities in the southern states and mainly Muslim majorities in the northern states. Twelve states have instituted sharia, partially or fully since 1999. Since Muhammadu Buhari became president in 2015, Nigeria’s military campaign against Boko Haram has been relatively successful in dislodging the group from the territories it had occupied in the northern parts of the country. Despite Buhari’s intention to fight Boko Haram, which has been responsible for much of the violence against Christians in recent years, the government seems to be reluctant to respond to the continuing violence against Christians in the Middle Belt region caused by Hausa-Fulani Muslim herdsmen.
You can pray Psalm 3:3:
“But You, Lord, are a shield around me, my glory, the One who lifts my head high.”
