Baroness (Caroline) Cox and Lord (David) Alton write to the International Criminal Court about the unfolding tragedy in Nigeria and the culture of impunity as the Nigerian authorities and the international community fail to act; and in four parliamentary replies today the UK Government respond to the statement by the Rt Rev Abiodun Ogunyemi, the Anglican Bishop of Zaria, on 24 July, that the campaign against Christians in Nigeria is a “genocide”; but in a continuing act of delusion the Foreign Office deny that radical religious ideology is “the principal driver of the violence” – which conveniently prevents them from having to take action under the Genocide Convention.
