Nigerian Christians facing crisis largely unrecognized by the West, says Anglican archbishop

From Christian Daily-

Christians in Nigeria are facing a humanitarian crisis due to the severity of persecution, but only a few in the West give their attention to this situation, according to Anglican archbishop Benjamin Kwashi from northern Nigeria.

During the recent Speak Freedom Dallas Summit held at the Dallas Baptist University, Archbishop Kwashi urged the audience to speak for those who are unable to do so. He highlighted Western media's tendency to contain a report on violence in Nigeria within the term "clash" instead of outright calling it a massacre, The Baptist Standard relays.

"We must speak on behalf of the voiceless. I have lost pastors. I have lost friends," said Archbishop Kwashi. "The injustice facing Christians in northern Nigeria is unbelievable."

Kwashi questioned the labeling of these violent incidents as a clash between Muslims and Christians. He pointed out that the victims in these incidents were murdered in their sleep, which makes it a massacre.
