Nigerian Christian lawyer warns of intense persecution

Christians in Nigeria are under harsh pressure from Islamic militants, according to a local attorney in the area. Catherine Yila Kwaltings explains that Christian girls and women are facing constant attacks and abductions.


“As a private legal practitioner, I have witnessed the bitter effects of the terrorist activities against Christians,” she said. “Here in Bauchi State, Christians are experiencing serious persecution and abductions from extremists in the area.”

In the ten years since she began her legal practice in Bauchi, Kwaltings says she has handled at least 15 different cases on the issues of abduction and other violence against Christian women and girls.

Earlier this year, she recently handled a case in an Islamic court of a Christian woman from Alkaleri town, Bauchi, who was beaten and injured in her place of business, sustaining serious physical injuries.
