Since solutions are not forthcoming, an internationally recognized persecution organization is trying to at least ease the pain for those dealing with the loss of Christian lives in Nigeria.
For at least two decades, Christians have been victimized by minority groups in the northern and middle areas of the country.
"I think most people, when we think of persecution in Nigeria, our minds are immediately brought to a group like Boko Haram, the Chibok girls that were kidnapped back in 2014," comments International Christian Concern's (ICC) William Stark, who has become an expert on the region. "However, if you actually look at the violence that's been perpetrated, the Fulani militants have killed by far and away more Christians than Boko Haram has."
Still, people seem to argue over why the conflict is taking place rather than come up with solutions.
"If you actually go to the Middle Belt in Nigeria and you start talking to these particular communities that are affected, you'll see how devastating this issue really is," Stark asserts. "In 2015, I was actually able to go to Nigeria in the Middle Belt region, and one of the things you immediately pick up on is just the hopelessness surrounding … it."
The people in the region are primarily farmers, so ICC rents land, gives them all they need to farm. They plow it, and the Christians plant and grow crops. More than 750 Christian families have been served so far by how ICC utilizes 400 hectares of land.
