Insurgents displace Nigerian Christians

In the violence inflicted by Boko Haram insurgents in northeastern Nigeria, the Ekklesiyar Yan’uwa a Nigeria (the Church of the Brethren in Nigeria) has been increasingly caught in the middle.

Samuel Dante Dali, EYN president, called for urgent help from the international community in a letter he sent to the Church of the Brethren in the United States in November.

“The future of Nigeria is getting darker and darker day by day, but Nigerian political leadership does not seem to take the suffering of the people very seriously,” he said. “The government of Nigeria with all its security seems very weak and helpless in handling the crisis.”
