U.S. Senator Warnock Stands in Solidarity with Plateau Victims, Outshining Nigerian Counterparts in Support

January 12, 2024

U.S. Senator Rev. Raphael Warnock has expressed solidarity with the Nigerian government following the recent terror attacks targeted at Christians. Warnock pledges support for humanitarian aid and emphasizes the need for justice and relief for victims.

The attack left over 200 natives dead in Bokkos and Barkin-Ladi communities in Plateau State during Christmas Eve terror attacks.

Senator Warnock made the pledge in solidarity during the Nigerians in Diaspora Organization Americas (NIDOA) condemnation of the killings of natives in the communities of Plateau.

He stated, “I will look further into this issue and seek opportunities to support humanitarian efforts, including the protection of religious freedom.”

The senator assured that when evaluating legislation related to human rights and religious freedom in Nigeria, he would look into NIDO’s recommendation on thorough investigations that are dedicated to meeting justice on the perpetrators.

Meanwhile, the Biden-led administration is yet to place Nigeria on the list of countries with increasing rates of Christian persecution by Islamist extremists, as there’s an ongoing petition by NADECO against his adadministration.

The U.S. had designated two other entities from Nigeria as “Entities of Special Concern” — Boko Haram and ISIS-West Africa but not the Fulani Jihadist militias who are responsible for the majority of the killings of Christians in Nigeria in recent years.

Nigeria’s governance approach, focusing on symptoms rather than root causes, prompts the government to consider humanitarian support for acts of terror by an as-yet-undeclared terrorist group. This raises critical national security concerns for citizens in Plateau State and Nigeria at large.
