Immediately seek justice for Nigeria's persecuted Christians
- About 14 Christians are murdered in Nigeria each day because of their faith.
- Without pushback from the international community, radical Islamist militias like Boko Haram regularly commit violence while imposing religious law.
- We need your help to help secure justice for those who are dependent on life-saving action.
Meet the four young Nigerian Christians we helped set free
Faith, Hannah, Elijah, and Barbara don’t know each other but their stories have two things in common: suffering, then freedom. Three are converts to Christianity, but all are young. And because of their faith, they faced the potential for religious violence and persecution. Even death.
Hannah was sued before the Sharia Court and her life was threatened because she did not convert to Islam, choosing to follow Jesus instead. Faith was evicted from her home because of her faith and then accused of apostasy before the Sharia Court. Elijah faced death threats from his own family after his conversion. Then his family sought the death penalty at the Sharia Court.
Barbara was displaced to Cameroon where she converted to Christianity and remarried after her husband divorced her. When they returned to Nigeria, the ex-husband sued on grounds of “adultery”. The judge ordered they be sent to prison pending their hearings.
Through the expedient work of the local lawyers ADF International supported in Nigeria, these young Christians were set free. However, these aren’t the only Christians in danger.
