Catholic Worshipers

A battle over religious dominance.

Gunmen entered a Catholic Pentecost worship service on Sunday, June 5, in southwestern Nigeria in the town of Owo. Around 100 were murdered. According to media reports, explosives were also detonated in the attack and the priest and some worshipers were kidnapped. This is only one of a series of crimes committed against Christian worshipers in the country.

“Jihadist groups have carried out many attacks on churches in Nigeria’s predominantly Muslim north in recent years,” reported. “This is the first time an attack has been carried out on a church in the predominantly Christian south. Religious conflicts, especially between Muslims and Christians, are a recurring occurrence in the West African country with a population of around 206 million.”
