Cyprus Statement on the Crises in Northern Nigeria

Issued by the Religious Liberty Partnership


  • Religious Liberty Partnership




As members of the Religious Liberty Partnership (RLP) meeting in Larnaca, Cyprus, we are deeply concerned by the continuing loss of life in violence that has affected northern and central Nigeria since 1999, and particularly, the recent murders of hundreds of men, women and children in Plateau State. We stand with our brothers and sisters in Nigeria who seek the restoration of justice, rehabilitation, reconciliation, and peace in their nation, and who uphold fundamental human dignity and rights, including religious freedom. We specifically call on all Christians worldwide to respond to this appeal for prayer and action in recognition that we are One Body united in Christ.
