The All-Party Parliamentary Group for International Freedom of Religion or Belief in the United Kingdom has launched a new report in Westminster this week entitled Nigeria – Unfolding Genocide?
The report launch featured speeches from the Chair of the APPG, Jim Shannon MP, Co-Chair Baroness Cox, and Rebecca Sharibu, the mother of Leah Sharibu who was kidnapped by Boko Haram two years ago and has yet to be released. Several members of the Religious Liberty Partnership gave written or oral evidence for the report, including CSW, UK and Open Doors, UK and Ireland.
The purpose of the report, “is to explore the drivers of conflict and to highlight the seriousness of the situation and the level of injustice that Nigerian Christians face,” said Jim Shannon MP, co-chair of the APPG.
The report urges the Government of Nigeria and the international community to implement key recommendations to help save the lives of Nigerian citizens and to improve their welfare.
