"Intersociety had individually and consistently revealed in its numerous reports that the anti-Christian butcher shops in southern Kaduna and those in Benue, Plateau, Nassarawa, Kogi, Niger, Taraba, Adamawa and the South West, South East and the rest are carefully planned, a systematically executed and well-funded project of state jihadism."
The International Society for Civil Liberties and the Rule of Law (Intersociety) released a report that Fulani herders, mostly Muslims, killed around 700 Christians in May, as 'farewell gifts' to the former Nigerian president Muhammadu Buhari.
On Facebook, Emeka Umeagbalasi, president of the association, explains that the three most affected states are Plateau, Benue and Kaduna states.
“As many as 1 helpless Christians have been massacred by Nigerian government-backed Islamic jihadists in the last 100 days or between April 60 and June 12, 12; translating into a daily average of 2023 Christian deaths,” she explains before saying that it is "one of the bloodiest anti-Christian attacks in Nigeria".
"1000 Christian communities ransacked by jihadists and government security forces since 2016," it continues, "available statistics showed that the Nigerian government protected jihadists and its Jihad-facilitating security forces sacked 1000 Christian communities. since 2016 and aided and abetted their jihadist takeover and occupation.”
Denouncing a clip on the “successful transformation of Nigeria into an Islamic State through the successful replication of full Islamic rule in Kaduna State since 2015 at the federal level”, the organization calls for the arrest of Nasir El-Rufai, former governor of Kaduna State.
"Intersociety had individually and consistently revealed in its numerous reports that the anti-Christian butcher shops in southern Kaduna and those in Benue, Plateau, Nassarawa, Kogi, Niger, Taraba, Adamawa and the South West, South East and the rest are carefully planned, systematically executed and well-funded state jihadism project modeled on the "Sudanese Janjaweed" of the atrocious era of Omar Hassan el-Bashir (1989-2019).Intersociety also stated categorically that its findings showed that the killings had absolutely nothing to do with the so-called 'farmer-herder clashes'."
