Plea for help against Boko Haram25 October 2012
The Archbishop of the Nigerian city of Jos said that despite accounts of Islamists bombing churches and murdering Christians, it was wrong to talk of religious war in his country.
Speaking at a parliamentary briefing in Westminster last week, Archbishop Ignatius Kaigama cited high unemployment, rapid population growth, and insufficient healthcare, education and social infrastructure as reasons why young people were getting caught up in violence, notably the Islamist group Boko Haram.
The archbishop called on the international community to provide intelligence training and equipment and pressure the federal Government to act against the group. "This is about terrorism, not Islam," he said.
