Radical Islamists belonging to the group Boko Haram are continuing their onslaught of Christians in Nigeria.
Most recently, the group claimed responsibility for an attack on Christian villages in the city of Jos that left 58 people dead.
Despite Boko Haram's ongoing violence and continued vows to rid Nigeria of its Christians, the U.S. government has not classified the sect as a terrorist organization.
The Christian Association of Nigeria said more must be done by the United States and other world leaders to stop Boko Haram's "holy war."
"By refusing to designate Boko Haram as a foreign terrorist organization, the United States is sending a very clear message not just to the federal government of Nigeria, but to the world that the murder of innocent Christians and Muslims who reject Islamism ... are accepted losses," Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor, president of Christian Association of Nigeria, recently said.
Pastor Ayo spoke more about the violence in Nigeria and his call for prayer and intervention for his nation. Stay with Christian World News for his comments, July 13.
