Nigeria is notorious for persecuting Christians. The Islamic terrorist group Boko Haram and its franchise tribe, the Fulani, are given full reign to persecute Christians. Moreover, the Biden State Department gives Nigeria a pass when it comes to Christian persecution. In its Annual Report on International Religious Freedom, State reported: “the level of insecurity and violence increased, including in the predominantly Muslim North West, where expanded numbers of criminal groups carried out thousands of killings, kidnappings, and armed robberies. Because issues of religion, ethnicity, land and resource competition, and criminality are often closely linked, it was difficult to categorize many incidents as being solely, or even principally, based on religious identity.” Further ,the Secretary of State concluded that Nigeria didn’t meet the criteria for religious persecution.
In over 30 years of ministry work in Ghana, West Africa, Nigeria’s neighbor, my partner William Agbeti and I have witnessed first-hand the persecution of Christians by the Islamic Fulani that migrated from Nigeria. Agbeti writes in response to the State Department report: “The issue of organized Islamic extremism spreading throughout West Africa, not excluding Ghana, is real. Their modus operandi for achieving such goals are to seize lands, forcefully occupy the lands and ruthlessly deal with any opposition to their mission. The extent they go to instill fear includes but not limited to murder, injury, destruction of whole towns, houses, farms, rape and forceful ejections. Any reports that indicate any findings to the contrary are either suspect or simply based on lack of in-depth knowledge about what’s going on.”
He continues, “In my ministry, we have come across many Islamic atrocities that are glaringly targeted at Christian communities and individuals to put fear in them to vacate their homes and lands! Deep in the rural areas in Ghana, many of such developments constantly occur and are never reported. Those that are reported, the authorities don’t act on them. I’m privy to many of such cases. The US Department of State report that has been released on the Fulani Menace in Nigeria should therefore be taken with a pinch of salt. Those of us on the ground know better and can easily read between the lines and come to the conclusion, that the Biden Administration discreetly supports global Islamic expansionism! Period!”
Agbeti sounds the alarm: “Christianity is the only thorn in the flesh of Islamic extremism! Europe is a walk over! America has been taken. It’s only a matter of time and Islam will boldly show its true face in that country! Any group of people, authority or organization that does not acknowledge this truism may likely be in bed with Islamic extremists or is sitting on an ivory tower talking about happenings on the ground. That can’t be realistic! Finally, there seems to be an unfinished business of Islamic expansionism that the ex-president, Obama, is pushing under the Biden Administration! Luke 8:17 says: “For nothing is secret, that shall not be made manifest; neither any thing hid, that shall not be known and come abroad.” The truth will out!” You may not think Nigeria has anything to do with you, but the Biden attitude toward persecution is telling.
