Two thousand two hundred Christians killed in Nigeria in 2020

The International Society for Civil Liberties & the Rule of Law (Intersociety), a nonprofit based out of Nigeria, has released a report in which they state that roughly 2,200 Christians have been killed already in 2020 by Fulani militants and Boko Haram throughout Nigeria.

The report states:

“From the 1st of January to the 13th of December of 2020, Intersociety has statistically found that as much as or not less than 2,200 Christians are most likely to have been killed in Nigeria and out of this figure, Jihadist Fulani Herdsmen is responsible for as much as or not less than 1,300 Christian deaths, followed by Boko Haram and its splinter groups (ISWAP and Ansaru) with five hundred Christian deaths, Nigerian Army two hundred Christian deaths and Jihadist “Bandits” one hundred Christian deaths. The five hundred Christian deaths by Boko Haram and its splinter groups arrived at using 60% Muslim and 40% Christian casualty calculation or ratio, had arisen from estimated 1,200 defenceless civilians killed by the jihadists from the 1st of January to the 13th of December of 2020. In other words, Nigeria in 2020 has lost an average of six Christians per day and 180 per month.”
