(Nigeria)–Compass Direct News reports religious and ethnic violence between Muslims and Christians in Nigeria continues. That may stem from rising tensions in several states over regarding the use of Islamic law. In Niger state, 75 Christians were arrested for opposing the state’s Islamic law. Rebels from Chad were also reportedly harassing Christians, killing some and looting their property. The raids into Borno state prevented evangelism by many clergymen, some of whom were forced to flee. Please pray for believers in Nigeria during this difficult time.
