Nigeria has become the tip of the spear in the jihadists war on Christianity.
International Christian Concern (ICC) has learned that members of the Nigerian Islamic group, Boko Haram, plan to make the month of June “the bloodiest month yet” in terms of attacks on Christians and promise more bloody attacks on Christians in the coming days.
The Islamists revealed their plan in their statement to Sahara Reporters, a New York based online news agency yesterday. In the past three weeks alone, more than 100 people have been killed in suicide bomb attacks by Boko Haram and the ensuing clashes between Christians and Muslims.
“I can’t dismiss the rumor and I can’t 100 percent accept that it will happen. But because of the trend of events, there is every possibility that something like that will happen,” said Rev. Lawi P. Pokti in an interview with ICC. Rev. Pokti is the chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria in Bauchi state.
“We should pray and watch. We should also remember that Jesus said in the world there is tribulation but with Him there is peace,” said Rev. Pokti in his message to Christians in Nigeria.
