Wednesday, November 13th, 2013

On 11/13/13, Habila Adamu, from the Yobe state in Northern Nigeria, gave very moving testimony before the House Subcommittee on Africa, Global Health, Global Human Rights, and International Organizations and the Subcommittee on Terrorism, Non-proliferation and Trade Committee on Foreign Affairs of the US House of Representatives about the threat of the Boko Haram organization, which at long last was declared as a “Foreign Terrorist Organization” by the U.S. Department of State on 11/13/13.

Kudos to the Jubilee Campaign for their work in making the US Congress aware of the threat of Boko Haram.

Deadly Attacks on Christians in Nigeria

Friday, May 4th, 2012

The Jubilee Campaign reports more deadly attacks on Christians in Nigeria. Dozens of Christians at a time while at worship continue to be killed by Boko Haram fanatics.

It is hard to believe that the U.S. State Department has not classified Boko Haram as a terrorist organization. Perhaps they are too busy sending dissidents back to the Chinese government.
