Jubilee Campaign is launching a public site where the FACTS of the ongoing violence in Nigeria can be clearly presented. With this site we hope to clearly illuminate the situation and allow concerned citizens, NGOs, Academics and policy-makers to find the relevant information quickly as well as providing links and sources for those who wish to pursue the subject further.
You can find the blog at factsnigeriaviolence.wordpress.com
On the blog you can find our spreadsheet of all incidents which were reported by the media or by our sources on the ground for the years 2010, 2011, and 2012. The website also contains a spreadsheet where you can view the attacks totals on Christians, Muslims, and the Government. This is important because so many sources mistakenly label Boko Haram as non-religious or only concerned with local matters, when in fact Boko Haram sees itself as part of the global jihadist movement.
Please send us your stories, tells us the names of the fallen, the date and place of the incident and a brief summation of what took place and we will be glad to keep a record for all the world to see.
We hope this website can be tool for those who make policy, and a comfort to the Nigerian people.
In HIS Grace and Peace
PLEASE DO NOT FORGET TO SIGN THE PETITION TO DESIGNATE BOKO HARAM AS A TERRORIST GROUP

Here is the text of our petition
Boko Haram has killed hundreds of innocent civilians using terrorist tactics. They deserve an FTO Designation.
The Islamic extremist group Jama'atu Ahlis Sunna Lidda'awati Wal-Jihad, aka Boko Haram, has killed an estimated three thousand Nigerians in the last three years. In the beginning of 2012 Boko Haram called for the religious cleansing and genocide of Christians in the north. Since then their indiscriminate bombings have killed men, women and children; soldiers, police and civilians; Christians, Muslim and the followers of traditional African folk beliefs. They have directly targeted helpless Christians, and any
Muslims who dare to disagree with their genocidal ambitions.
Despite all this uncontested evidence, the US has refused to designate Boko
Haram a Foreign Terrorist Organization.
Join us in calling for the US to do the right thing and acknowledge that Boko
Haram are terrorists.
