Nigeria: Christian lawyer in hiding after receiving death threats for defending victims of Fulani attacks

12/12/20

A Nigerian Christian lawyer and leader of the Emancipation Centre for Crisis Victims in Nigeria is now in hiding after receiving death threats for speaking publicly about the unrelenting attacks on Christians. 

Dalyop Solomon has spoken out against the murder of Christians by the terrorist group Boko Haram and radical Fulani herdsmen. He visited villages where men and women were murdered, speaking with witnesses to document what happened.

Islamist militias in Nigeria murdered an estimated 1,202 Christians between January and June of this year. These murders are genocide, according to Jubilee Campaign USA, which submitted its data and research from Nigeria to the International Criminal Court last year.

Those who are attempting to hunt down and kill Solomon are being helped by people outside of Nigeria, an anonymous source claimed in an interview with Nigeria’s Opera News.

“Inside sources revealed on Monday that his photograph has been taken to Saudi Arabia, and his phone contact is being trailed from Abuja (Nigeria’s capital) just to have him shot dead or captured alive. His present residence has been traced by some hired agents,” the anonymous source said. 

Solomon has spoken out to defend persecuted Nigerian Christians for over a decade. He also tracks and reports attacks against Christians in Central Nigeria and has prosecuted attackers who’ve killed Christians and destroyed their villages.

France: Un avocat de la Black Robe Brigade interpellé sans motif, il est libéré après 5 heures de retenue

12/12/20

Ce samedi, la police a opéré une répression avec des interpellations de masse. Une répression visant à encadrer et contrôler la manifestation, mais aussi à intimider. Parmis les 142 personnes interpellées, 42 garde à vues, dont 2 journalistes et … un avocat !

« Libéré après 5 heures de retenue. Aucun motif d’interpellation ou de retenue n’a jamais été invoqué. Aucun droit n’a été notifié. Technique illégale mais banale malheureusement pour empêcher les gens de manifester. Tout va bien… » dénonce la BlackRobeBrigade.
