In recent years violent attacks by Muslims in Nigeria have left thousands of Christians dead. The origins of the current crisis are traced to the historical impact of Islam on Northern Nigeria.

He explains how their history has bequeathed a tainted legacy of discrimination and cruelty to the Christians of Northern Nigeria.
