The Boko Haram terrorists relentlessly continue their targeting of the minority Christian community within the Northern states of Nigeria. Their activities have created many martyrs, and left many widows and orphans behind. In 2012, more Christians were killed in northern Nigeria than the rest of the world combined. Sadly, September of this year was the bloodiest month in 3 years with over 150 Christians killed in one highway massacre alone while our team was in northern Nigeria. About 500 people were killed in September.
Jubilee Campaign and partners tireless effort to draw attention to this genocide is starting to bear fruit. We are honored to present the following events:
Wednesday, November 13th
The House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Africa will hold a hearing on Boko Haram. Jubilee Campaign’s Nigerian expert and special counsel for Justice for Jos, Emmanuel Ogebe will testify. Jubilee Campaign has worked with our friends at Voice of the Martyrs to bring Adamu Habila, the sole survivor of a Boko Haram neighborhood massacre who was targeted solely because of his Christian faith, to testify. Click here for the entire list of panelists. If you are unable to attend there will be a live stream on the Committee website.
Ann Buwalda, an attorney and law professor, is the Executive Director of Jubilee Campaign, an organization focusing on international religious freedom, the plight of religious-based refugees, and other human rights issues. She recently interviewed Nigerian Christians who have taken refuge in Cameroon.

In HIS Grace and Peace
