Nigerian Christians are being slaughtered by extremist Fulani militia and Boko Haram. Armed Conflict and Location Event Data (ACLED) shows 3,200 people killed by Fulani militia since 2018. Since 2008 there are 40,000 deaths tied to Boko Haram, a terror group that swore allegiance to ISIS in 2015.* One recent report by a Nigerian organization says that in the first five months of 2020 alone, 620 Christians were murdered in Nigeria.** In addition to murdering Christians, Boko Haram practices mass kidnappings of school girls and many of them have never been found. Those that have been returned to their families alive tell of rape, forced conversion to Islam, and the murder of girls who tried to escape.

On May 20, 2020, Senators Joni Ernst (R-IA) and now former Senator Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) sent a joint letter to then-President Donald Trump, reminding him that after his April 2018 meeting with Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari, the killing of Christians stopped for six months. The lawmakers asked the President to use the full range of options available to him to highlight the plight of Christians in Nigeria, including sending a Special Envoy to the Lake Chad region, and “impose sanctions under the Global Magnitsky Human Rights Accountability Act against those who perpetrate these killings.”

The problems that plagued Nigeria under the Trump Administration continue under the current Administration and President Biden should also be encouraged to use his authority to help stop the bloodshed.
