Summary: 
  • "It's tough to tell Nigerian Christians this isn't a religious conflict since what they see are Fulani fighters clad entirely in black, chanting 'Allahu Akbar!' and screaming 'Death to Christians.'" — Sister Monica Chikwe, reported by John. L. Allen Jr., Crux, August 4, 2019.

  • "Hundreds of indigenous Numan Christians in Adamawa state were attacked and killed by jihadist Fulani herdsmen. When they tried to defend themselves the Buhari govt. sent in the Airforce to bomb hundreds of them and protect the Fulani aggressors. Is this fair?!" — Femi Fani-Kayode, former Minister of Aviation, Daily Post (Nigeria), December 6, 2017.

  • Such is the current state of affairs: a jihad of genocidal proportions has been declared on the Christian population of Nigeria, and spearheaded by that nation's president and his fellow Fulani tribesmen, even as Western media and analysts present Nigeria's problems as products of economics — or "inequality" and "poverty," to quote former US President Bill Clinton on the supposedly true source that is "fueling all this stuff."

Most recently, Father Valentine Obinna, a priest of the Aba diocese of Nigeria,  the ongoing slaughter of Christians to the planned "Islamization of Nigeria":

"People read the handwriting on the wall. It's obvious. It's underground. It's trying to make the whole country a Muslim country. But they are trying to do that in a context with a strong presence of Christians, and that's why it becomes very difficult for him [Buhari]."

Nigeria is roughly half Muslim, half Christian. A 2011 ABC News  offers context on when and why Muslim anger reached a boiling point:

The current wave of [Muslim] riots was triggered by the Independent National Election Commission's (INEC) announcement on Monday [April 18, 2011] that the incumbent President, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan [a Christian], won in the initial round of ballot counts. That there were riots in the largely Muslim inhabited northern states where the defeat of the Muslim candidate Muhammadu Buhari was intolerable, was unsurprising. Northerners [Muslims] felt they were entitled to the presidency for the declared winner, President Jonathan, [who] assumed leadership after the Muslim president, Umaru Yar'Adua died in office last year and radical groups in the north [Boko Haram] had seen his [Jonathan's] ascent as a temporary matter to be corrected at this year's election. Now they are angry despite experts and observers concurring that this is the fairest and most independent election in recent Nigerian history.
