Recent attacks on Christmas Eve in Plateau State in Nigeria

  Charlie Weimers, on behalf of the ECR Group. – Mr President, in the wake of the slaughter of 335 Christians by Muslims in Nigeria, I very much welcome this debate.

Atrocities against Christians don’t fit the EU narrative. We just heard the left label the systematic persecution of Christians in Nigeria a tribal conflict between herdsmen and farmers. Well, was it a coincidence that the slaughter and burning of churches took place on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, I wonder?

Fact: 90 % of Christian martyrs are Nigerian. It is wilful ignorance to claim the religion of peace did not motivate these brutal killings. The EU is not exerting real pressure on Nigeria to bring these terrorists to justice and restore law and order, because Christian victims do not fit the post-colonial worldview of the left. That’s why.
