Displacement camps refuse food to Christians

ABUJA, Nigeria — Christians fleeing terrorist group Boko Haram in Nigeria are being kept from getting food and other aid at a number of displacement camps, according to Open Doors USA.

More than 2 million have fled from their homes since the brutal group began terrorizing the country eight years ago. Camps began to crop up all over the country but as they were handed over to Muslim organizations in some areas, Christians became the brunt of discrimination, local bishop William Naga said, according to The Christian Post.

“They will give food to the refugees but if you are a Christian they will not give you food,” he said. “They will openly tell you that the relief is not for Christians.”

Nearly 1.8 million people in Nigeria are currently starving, according to Open Doors USA, and in these situations Muslims are reportedly getting preferential treatment. (TAB)
