Several incidents of Christian persecution in the past few months have cemented Nigeria as a difficult place for Christians to live.

In January, a female student was arrested after converting from Islam to Christianity. Nabila Umar Sanda, 19, became friends with Simput Dafup, a 33-year-old Christian, who, once she expressed an interest in Christianity, invited her to meet a local church leader, Jeremiah Datim. Both Nabila Umar Sanda and Simput Dafup were arrested later that day and are still being held in an unknown location.
