Obama Urged To Intervene In Boko Haram Menace
« on: Jan 03, 2013, 09:28 PM »
Christian Association of Nigerian- Americans (CANAN), a United States-based Nigerian group, has urged President Barrack Obama to intervene in what it called “tradition of killing Nigerian Christians on Christmas day” by the Islamic militant sect Boko Haram.

In a recent SOS letter sent to the White House in Washington DC, the group said last year alone Boko Haram killed over 800 Nigerian Christians.  “We had warned that Boko Haram would continue its tradition of killing Nigerian Christians on Christmas day.

Last week marked the third straight year that the terror group has murdered Nigerian Christians in the church on a Christmas day.

“But the problem is worse than that. This year alone Boko Haram has killed almost 800 Nigerians, most of whom are Christians. In the last three years, over 3000 have been sent to tragic deaths. Victims also include people from several other countries.

“The Nigerian President, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan again over the weekend acknowledged his government’s inability so far to quell the Boko Haram attacks. According to the Associated Press, Jonathan’s remarks offer a glimpse into “the worried leader’s mind as his weak government remains unable to stop attacks by the Boko Haram.”

“Our government in Washington DC, especially the White House and the State Department are fully aware of what is going on. But both President Barack Obama and outgoing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have simply tolerated this impunity by their inaction” part of the SOS letter signed by Pastor Laolu Akande, the Executive Director of the association reads.
