Nigeria is the most dangerous Country in the world to be a Christian – US Congress

Nigeria has been cited as the most dangerous place for Christians in the world by the United States House of Representatives.
The chairman of its subcommittee on Africa, Global Health, Human Rights and International Organisation, Christopher Smith, stated this in a letter inviting former President Goodluck Jonathan to make a presentation to the Sub-Committee on the challenges faced by Christians in Nigeria and the Niger Delta issue.
Although, the event held on the 1st and 2nd February, the actual content of the letter is only just revealed with its labeling of Nigeria as the most dangerous country to be a Christian and that impunity for those responsible for the killing of Christians in the country “seems to be widespread.”
According to ThisDay, Smith said: “My subcommittee has broadly investigated the crises facing Christians in Nigeria today. My staff director, Greg Simpkins and I have made several visits to Nigeria, speaking with Christians and Muslim religious leaders across the country and visiting fire-bombed churches, such as in Jos.
