Ad Feedback

Christians in northern Nigeria are praying for a peaceful Easter season amidst warnings from U.S. and British intelligence officials that there is a high risk of attack during religious festivals.

According to the U.S. officials, that there have been "continued threats, including several that mention U.S. interests."
 
"The U.S. Embassy continues to monitor closely the ongoing threats posed by Nigerian extremist and criminal groups, and their stated intentions to carry out attacks against the Nigerian government and Western interests and targets in Nigeria," the message read.

Last Christmas, the radical Islamist sect Boko Haram bombed a Catholic church in the capital city of Abuja, killing 44 people.
    
The group has pledged to drive all Christians out of northern Nigeria and to institute Islamic Sharia law in Christian and Muslim areas of the country.
