The Nigerian government continues to ignore the destruction Christian farms
The mass destruction of farms has become the new normal in many communities of Plateau State, located in the North Central region of Nigeria.
In the region, many Christians continue to be targeted by militants, including some of Fulani origin, for what locals describe as ethnic cleansing. The attackers use various strategies ranging from killing, burning houses and food barns, and destroying crops.
One of the hardest-hit communities is Miango, a community in Bassa Local Government Area, Plateau State. The community is inhabited by the Rigwe people, a minority tribe who are predominantly Christians.
ICC has written many times about attacks in this community. Since 2017, hundreds of men, women, and children have been killed, while many houses and food barns have been burned along with thousands of hectares of crops.
