Nigeria

Nigeria is the most populous country in Africa. Divided between a predominantly Muslim north and a predominantly Christian south, the country is home to some of the world’s most vicious scenes of religious conflict. Boko Haram (roughly translated as “Western education is forbidden”), an Islamist movement that seeks to impose Shari’ah law throughout Nigeria, has claimed responsibility for a spate of attacks on Christian churches in recent years.
