Dear Friends,

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.

Thursday, November 14th
12:00- 1:30PM
Our friends at the Hudson Institute will hold a luncheon “Witness of Boko Haram’s Religious Cleansing in Northern Nigeria: An Inside Look at the World’s Deadliest Place for Christians”.
This panel discussion will address the human impact of the ongoing violence by Boko Haram and the necessary steps the international community needs to take to address and halt the rise of jihadists in Northern Nigeria.
Senior Fellow and Director of the Center for Religious Freedom at the Hudson Institute, Nina Shea, will moderate the discussion. Panelists will include:
Adamu Habila, a first-hand witness to the terror, and the sole survivor of a massacre of his neighborhood November 2012. Adumu Habila is the first known victim of Boko Haram to visit Washington and speak publicly about his experiences.
Emmanuel Ogebe is an international human rights lawyer and expert in bilateral U.S.-Nigerian relations who founded the “Justice for Jos Project” in 2010, which seeks redress for the victims of persecution in Northern Nigeria.

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.

Emmanuel Ogebe and Ann Buwalda recently returned from a fact-finding mission to Nigeria. They will report on the Nigerian government’s response to the violence; the inadequacy of U.S. and Western involvement and assistance; and the internationalization of the plight of Nigeria’s indigenous Christian population.

We look forward to seeing you.

In HIS Grace and Peace
