A Short-list of Recent Islam-inspired killings in Nigeria


Islam-inspired killings, directed primarily at Christian communities, continue unabatedly in Nigeria.  Sadly, the government of the day appears not even to be noticing!
The Table below documents at least 217 human lives terminated in Nigeria, in the name of Islam in January 2018 alone.  Another 205 people suffered various degrees of injury in the same month.  The list was extracted from a list of global killings in the name of in the name of Islam maintained by TheReligionofPeace.com.(TROP).  TROP does not capture all the incidents though.
