Nigerian bishops condemn attacks on students, schools

March 17, 2014

In a message to the Fides news service, the Nigerian bishops noted that the “deeply distressing” attacks by Boko Haram have frequently been aimed against educational institutions, and the instability of the nation has had negative consequences on the schooling of children.
