      Ethnic Conflict and State Formation in Post-Colonial Africa: A Comparative Study of Ethnic Genocide in the Congo, Liberia, Nigeria, and Rwanda-Burundi By Badru, Pade Journal of Third World Studies, Vol. 27, No. 2, Fall   In his new book, My Transition Hours, Jonathan although Christians were only recently the majority of Nigeria's population, the ongoing genocide against them has caused their population to.

        Genocide is action intended to destroy in whole or in part “a national, ethnic, racial, or religious group.” Clearly, genocide is what Boko Haram and the Fulani herdsman are after in Nigeria. Nigerian president Muhammadu Buhari, however, denies this.   Most of us in the West heard about the schoolgirls from northeastern Nigeria who were kidnapped in by the Islamic terrorist group Boko Haram. Yet that was only the most infamous instance of Christian persecution in Nigeria, which can be traced back to the 19 th-century Sokoto law was officially established in the region in , and Islamist violence has surged .

        Are Nigeria’s Christians the target of a genocide? That is the conclusion of a number of religious freedom analysts and Nigerian clergy who joined a recent online press call.   The Nigerian government has mischaracterized the near-genocide of Christians in Nigeria for years as a conflict between farmers (Christians) and herders (Fulani) perpetuated by tribal issues. This strategy distracts the world from the reality of the situation: it is a devastating, one-sided war.
