Christian Association of Nigeria demands answers after Boko Haram kills pastor

Following the beheading of Rev. Lawan Andimi at the hands of Boko Haram Monday, CAN issued sharp words of criticism for the Nigerian federal government due to its inability to thwart attacks and abductions carried out against Christians by Boko Haram and the Islamic State’s West Africa Province in Nigeria’s northeast.

I’m pretty sure that what happened in Nigeria was one of those videoed type of executions, perhaps he talked first. I won’t watch. I will say, it talks of Northeast Nigeria in the article, that is the big trouble-spot as far as finding radical militants, as Boko Haram are. Ethnic cleansing, genocide maybe.
