US To Designate Nigeria ‘country Of Particular Concern’ Over Killings by Cooly100: 10:54am On Jun 02, 2018
* Accuses FG of failing to hold perpetrators accountable

By Bayo Akinloye

Against the backdrop of incessant killings in Nigeria, particularly the predominantly Muslim herdsmen slaying Christian farmers, the United States Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF) has recommended to the US government that Nigeria should be designated as a “Country of Particular Concern”, CPC.

This recommendation is contained in the latest report of the USCIRF titled, “2018 Annual Report–Key Findings and Recommendations,” obtained yesterday by THISDAY on the website of the US Department of State.



While on Thursday, at a telephonic press conference on the latest report on religious freedom with Samuel Brownback, US Ambassador-at-Large for International Religious Freedom, in Washington, D.C., it was disclosed that plans were underway for the American envoy to visit Nigeria and later for religious leaders in the country and other African countries to be invited to the US to discuss the issue of religious violence and freedom with the Donald Trump administration.

In its 2018 report, the USCIRF recommended 16 countries for CPC designation. They are Burma, China, Eritrea, Iran, North Korea, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Central African Republic, Nigeria, Pakistan, Russia, Syria, and Vietnam.

This is why I support US having military bases in Ghana and Cameroun.

Remember how France helped Mali to push back the Islamist terrorists from going south...

If not for the French forces...Mali would have since been overrun.

Good point. Nothing is too much to counter jihadist. I used to be against setting up military bases by the US in West Africa, but with the way jihadist are trying to overrun west Africa and Nigeria in particular, I have changed my mind.
US military bases will be welcome in Nigeria.

When USA turn to coward and powerless country under might Trump ? Obama supervised the killed of the most wanted terrorist Osama Binladen . Why America always talking about the killing in Nigeria without action. Do you think USA don't know the Genesis of bokoharam and Fulani militants in Nigeria ? Why is difficult for USA Authority to bring the culprits to the justice instead of tarnish the image of government.

"The pot calling the kettle black” . In the US three people are killed by a gun per hour and almost seven people are shot every 60 minutes.

The FBI's “crime clock” indicates that a violent crime occurs every 25.3 seconds.
