Subject: Urgent Action Required - Condemnation and Response to Terrorist Attacks on Christians in Nigeria

 

Dear Sirs,

 

I am writing to bring to your urgent attention the recent heinous terrorist attack in Nigeria, where three Christians were brutally executed after being taken off a bus by terrorists from ISWAP (Islamic State West Africa Province) who continue to move around unfettered and wreck destruction on lives. 

 

This atrocity has yet again left the Christian community in shock and fear, but equally worrying is that there has been a ‘very loud silence’ from both the Nigerian and British governments who both proffer the tenets of Human Rights (the right to life), Freedom of  religion or belief. Who both espouse the rule of law, territorial integrity but seem to allow impunity for these attacks of innocent christians and citizens murdered in cold blood.

 

We urgently request the following actions:

 

  1. Immediate and strong public condemnation of this attack from both the Nigerian and British governments.
  2. Detailed information on the measures being taken to prevent such attacks in the future.

 

This killing comes just a few days after the terrorist group issued a ‘leave or die’ notice to communities in the Kukawa LGA in Borno State after killing 15 fishermen in the region. This adds to the urgency of a coordinated and effective response.

 

We understand that Parliament is in recess due to the upcoming elections, but the functioning of the government must and does continue, especially in response to democracy-threatening atrocities like these.

 

We await your prompt response and concrete actions to address this grave situation.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

Ayo Adedoyin, CEO PSJUK and other concerned Nigerians and friends of Nigeria who have undersigned

    Nigerian citizens are unprotected by their own Government because of their faith. They have become DISPENSABLE and a DISPOSABLE HUMAN RESOURCE WASTE!

    This is a task that must be accomplished! When it was happening to others, everyone kept silent including the church, now the hydra headed effect has outgrown itself. God is nevertheless still on the throne!

    As the Nigerian Government busies itself with some of the least important things to the Nigerian people, a nudge by the UK government for accountability and results around efforts to bring justice to the persecuted across the country, especially in northern Nigeria, could make a huge difference.
