The United States Government, for the first time, placed Nigeria on a religious freedom blacklist, as Christian and Islamic groups in the country voice out a growing concern on insecurity and repression from the leaders of Nigeria.
The US Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, had on Monday designated Nigeria as a “Country of Particular Concern” for religious freedom, the rare inclusion of a fellow democracy in the US effort to shame nations into action.

Pompeo announced the inclusion of Nigeria in the religion violations list on Twitter.. everyone have had it that our beloved country Nigeria is in list of violent countries in the whole world.
