“The terrorists attacked around 1:15 am (0015 GMT) and soldiers engaged them in a 30-minute fight, forcing them to withdraw,” a military officer said in an account confirmed by another officer.

The fighters’ intention was to attack and loot the town after overrunning the base, said the officer, who asked not to be identified because he was not authorised to speak to the media.

Nigeria ranks 12th in 2019 Open Doors report on "The 50 countries where it’s most dangerous to follow Jesus"

Open Doors USA has published the 2019 World Watch List which details the "The 50 countries where it’s most dangerous to follow Jesus."

Nigeria is ranked number 12 on this list. According to the report, the source of persecution is Islamic Oppression. The report goes further to say "Nigeria’s score for violence has stayed as high as possible, primarily due to the increased attacks on Christian communities by militant Fulani herdsmen."

"These attacks claimed the lives of hundreds of believers during the reporting period, and villages and churches burned to the ground. Additionally, in parts of northern Nigeria, Christians are treated as second class citizens. Christians from Muslim backgrounds face persecution from their own families."
