Christians in Nigeria marched on Sunday to protest recent anti-Christian killings in the country, as well as the government's reported inaction in addressing the murders.

The Christian Association of Nigeria had issued a call for Nigerian followers of Christ to march in response to the beheading of Church of the Brethren pastor Lawan Andimi. The organization also called upon God to "expose all the government functionaries and security chiefs" who refused to investigate the murders and who are giving "vital information" to the terrorists responsible for them.

Nigerian Christians experienced a notably bloody year in 2019, with terrorist groups such as Boko Haram and nomadic killers such as the Fulani Muslim herdsmen killing more than 1,000 local Christians during the year.

🔦 The World Watch List said last month that Nigeria is the second-most dangerous country in the world for Christians, topped only by Pakistan.
