US Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) and former NFL Star Benjamin Watson will join John Stonestreet, the president of the Colson Center at an International Committee on Nigeria press conference today to condemn the religious persecution and genocide taking place in Nigeria, and call on the U.S. government to take action

More than 90,000 innocent lives – mainly women and children – have been lost as a result of terrorist attacks throughout Nigeria since 2000, including 60,000 killed by Boko Haram and Fulani Militants in the country’s Middle Belt region.

More than 460 Nigerians have been killed during the months of July and August alone by radicalized Fulani militants. Meanwhile, the Nigerian government has done little – if anything – to stop the killings.
