U.S. Laments Govt’s Inaction On Religious Extremism, Considers Special Envoy by Islie: 7:39am On Jun 10
The United States Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF) has warned of a genocide in the country if the Federal Government fails to arrest the growing extremism, particularly in the North.

Speaking yesterday during a virtual hearing on the escalation of violence by non-state actors in Nigeria and its potential to exacerbate deteriorating religious freedom conditions, USCIRF said it will push for a special envoy to be sent to engage the current administration on the ongoing killings in the North East and the Lake Chad region.

The body noted that insecurity was spreading in the country, with violent attacks against civilians and security forces occurring daily.

“Among the complex web of armed actors and motivations, extremists in various parts of the country target individuals and communities based on their religious identity. Christian and Muslim communities fear for their lives, risking death, mutilation and abduction when they worship in public and celebrate significant religious ceremonies.

“Amidst this shocking scale of violence, government’s inaction is pervasive. Impunity for extremists, who target religious communities and houses of worship, is systemic across much of the country. The Federal Government’s approach has failed to curb the violence and protect its citizens’ rights to freedom of religion or belief. As a body, we will encourage the U.S. government to support Nigeria in addressing impunity for extremist violence,” Anurima Bhargava, USCIRF chair, stated yesterday.

Panelists at the virtual hearing included U.S. ex-Representative member, Frank Wolf; Vice President, Global Affairs and Partnerships, Search for Common Ground, Mike Jobbins; founder, Choice for Peace, Gender, and Development, Hafsat Maina Muhammed; Catholic Priest; Head of Department, Religious Studies, Federal University, Wukari, Taraba State, Anthony Bature; and analyst in African Affairs, Congressional Research Service, Tomás Husted.

The panelists said they were disturbed that the rest of the world was closing its eyes to the worsening insecurity in Nigeria.

Wolf said: “Nigeria is failing and there is little attention by the West to the crisis. History is repeating itself as it happened in Rwanda. If what is happening in Nigeria is happening in the West, the world would have been enraged but there is silence and inaction, which could prove fatal to the West Africa region and rest of the world.”

In April, USCIRF in its report recommended that the U.S. Department of State designate Nigeria as a Country of Particular Concern (CPC) for its severe violations of religious freedom. USCIRF made the same recommendation in last year’s report, which State did follow in a December 2, 2020 announcement that condemned Nigeria for “having engaged in or tolerated particularly severe violations of religious freedom.”

You can ban Twitter but not the US government.

This government has failed in its primary function which is the security of lives and property. And his obvious favoritism isn't helping matters at all

The USA should pile hot coal on buhari's bald skull. He is a bloody terrorist and a Godforsaken murderer of Christians.

He romances with Islamic terrorists like himself and kills Southern Christians who challenge his wickedness.

Some of those terrorists are in his cabinet eg Sheik Isa Pantami, Al-haji Lai mohammed, Sheik Gumi etc. These are all terrorist killers.

Who says "by non-state actors"?

The genocide in Nigeria is fully backed by the government. The Federal Government's has repeatedly shown complicity and complacency in the issue time and again. At least, Governor Samuel Ortom knows the Nigeria security apparatus better than most of us do and he has unequivocally said this many times.

The killings in the eastern Nigeria is aimed at eradication of eastern Nigeria youths, who is sending the terrorists in the army uniform to the eastern Nigeria? Why the killings of the unarmed civilians in the eastern Nigeria?

The world is seeing the ethnic/religious cleansing going on in Nigeria which was encouraged by the govt itself. Warning them of Rwanda is right on time cos when Nigeria nationalities turn on Fulani herdsmen, it might be worst than Rwanda itself.

Well, like I once said concerning the current situation in Nigeria and how the international bodies will react to it.

US don't just bring back their soldiers home from war zones and render them idle so, if Biden decided he's pulling out his soldiers in Afghanistan on September 11 then US must have another mission to send them to

And on the international conspiracy agenda, most oil producing countries with religious extremism are booked to go down like Iraq, Libya, etc so therefore Nigeria is ripe for the program that's why I don't see it as a coincidence when Obama said Nigeria would be a failed state by 2015 and by 2015 our President was elected

SHAME, shame Nigerian youths with brighter future can't avert this

SHAME the youths that won't come out #june12naijafreedom

It depends...

Do not come and commit resources to aid this government in fighting the insurgency they created in the North while the Nigerian army made up of "repentant" terrorists are sent to the South to stop those who are making attempt to defend themselves and protect their lands against invasion by terrorists. That will amount to aiding terrorism.

Let no one decieve you, this is not religious extremism... Naah. It's the age-long hatred of the blood descendants of Esau/Edom and Ishmael for the blood descendants of Yakubi/Jacob (in southern Nigeria) and no man can deliver you, not even the U.S.

They all know the truth but they pretend. They all want you enslaved and subjugated because they know who you are. Your awakeing will change the world order and would signal the end of their rule and their destruction. They want you asleep while destruction looms.
