Jos, 22 October, 2021 / 1:17 pm (ACI Africa).
Christian Solidarity Worldwide (CSW), an international human rights body that advocates for religious freedom, has launched a global campaign calling “for action to stem” attacks that target learning institutions in Nigeria.
"Sing For Freedom is calling for action to stem the scourge of abductions targeting educational establishments in Northern and Central Nigeria, that have resulted in over 1,100 students kidnapped for ransom and at least seven killed since December 2020," CSW officials say in their Thursday, October 22 report.
In the report, the CEO of CSW-USA, Kori Porter, says the campaign, which is expected to end on November 7 “is a challenge to everyone, everywhere, to raise their voices for freedom."
"We want to see Leah, the Chibok Girls and the many other students who have had their lives threatened and education interrupted, returned home," Mr. Porter says.
