The tragic situation in Nigeria deserves international recognition and it is the responsibility of the international community to respond accordingly.
Nigeria’s Silent Slaughter: Genocide in Nigeria and the Implications for the International Community, a recently released, persuasive data tome, was written and compiled by organizations who are at the forefront of advocacy in Nigeria. These individuals along with their respective organizations are actively involved in exposing the atrocities and the slaughter currently engulfing Nigeria. The research, data, testimonies, and statistics contained in this tome speak loudly to the condition of genocide.
This data report was researched, compiled and produced by the collaborative efforts of the International Committee On Nigeria (ICON) & International Organization on Peace-building & Social Justice (PSJ).
As Nigeria Goes, So Goes Africa
In Nigeria today, the breakdown of the rule of law, spiraling violence, atrocities against targeted religious groups and innocent civilians, and the apparent impunity of perpetrators together have all contributed to transforming the country into a largely failed state and a regional epicenter for terrorism and religious persecution of Christians and at-risk non-Muslim minorities.
Dr. Richard Ikiebe of PSJ speaking to Mataz Arising on Saturday August 28, 2021 on the works of PSJ, aid that the organization stands for Peace Building and Social Justice (PSJ). Their purpose is to alert Nigerians on the killings that is going on in Nigeria. Dr. Ikiebe informed during the interview that among the purpose of PSJ is to collate, engage and document daily the killings in the country. In the first half of the year 2021 alone, 3,165 people were killed, dyring the same period in 2020, it was over 2,500 people that were killed.
Dr. Ikiebe informed that many people thought it was a myth that people cannot be killed at such rate, that the organization is just recycling the same old stories about the ongoing slaughtering, so they decided to start documenting the killings as much as possible. Those who know better are saying that the report is just a scratch of what the true report really is. More than 67 villages have been wiped out in Plateau, many villages have been wiped out and repopulated and their name changed.
The faith-based organization is for peace building in Nigeria. They care about and advocate for all faith, not just that of Christians. Dr. Ikiebe reiterated that the Nigerian Nation is well resourced and has more than enough for every ethnic group within the nation.
Dr. Ikiebe concluded that if the world powers allow Nigeria to collapse, which might happen, that all Africa is gone. That there is ISIS, EL SHABAB and ISWAP all over Africa, that the only country that Nigeria is the only country holding Africa together, therefore, if anything should happen to Nigeria, it means the whole Africa is gone.
Imagine these groups now have the whole of the wealth of Africa to themselves. The world powers, in their own interest need to take the situation in Nigeria seriously and arrest it without further delay.
