Persecution Of Christians In Northern Nigeria

EDM number 797 in 2014-15, proposed by Jim Shannon on 12/02/2015.
Categorised under the topics of Africa and Religion and faith communities.

That this House expresses concern over the continued unrest in Northern Nigeria which has left 2,000 people dead since 3 January 2015 and has displaced 30,000 people, with over 1,000 churches destroyed since 2009; and calls for better protection to be given to Christians in Northern Nigeria, particularly in light of Boko Haram's statement that it will continue its attacks on Christian communities in Nigeria.

This motion has been signed by a total of 25 MPs.
