U.S Ambassador-everywhere for International Religious Freedom, Samuel Brownback said the choice was taken on the grounds that ‘various psychological militant gatherings are arranging and driving into the nation, and the public authority’s reaction to fear based oppressor exercises has been insignificant.”
Brownback added that a ton of ”strict touched viciousness” are occurring in the nation which is of extraordinary worry to the world.
“The Secretary and, really, the world, has great concern about what’s taking place in Nigeria at this time. A number of terrorist groups are organising and pushing into the country.
“We’re seeing a lot of religious-tinged violence taking place in that country and indeed in West Africa. It’s an area of growing concern about what’s happening, in particular the tension that’s taking place there between religious groups. And it’s often the religious affiliation that is used to try to recruit and inspire violent acts.
The ambassador added that a major concern for the U.S regarding Nigeria is “the lack of adequate government response in Nigeria.
“You’ve got expanded terrorist activities, you’ve got a lot of them associated around religious affiliations. The government’s response has been minimal to not happening at all.
“A number of cases – there have not been criminal cases brought forward by the government. The terrorism continues to happen and grow, in some places unabated.” he said
