Senators ask President Trump to address Christian persecution in Nigeria

Two Republican senators are asking President Trump to protect Christians facing ongoing brutal persecution from Islamic groups in Nigeria, CBN News reported.


Iowa senators Joni Ernst and Chuck Grassley recently sent a letter to Donald Trump, asking the president to consider deploying a special envoy to help end the Christian genocide in Nigeria.

Among others, the senators included into the latter that more than forty thousand deaths can be tied to the Islamist Boko Haram terrorist organisation and its affiliates.

According to CBN News, along with other Islamic militants known as the Fulani herdsmen, the Boko Haram has long threatened the lives of Christians in the West African country. 

While Nigeria is ranked 12th on Open Doors’ 2020 World Watch List, the mainstream media in the US has remained mostly silent as the Muslim terrorists’ merciless killing of Nigerian Christians rages on, CBN News noted.
