Nigerian Christians, Muslims open peace center in strife-torn region

August 24, 2016

Nigerian Christian and Muslim leaders gathered on August 19 in the strife-torn state of Kaduna for the inauguration of the International Centre for Inter-Faith Peace and Harmony.

Cardinal John Olorunfemi Onaiyekan of Abuja has lent his support to the initiative.

The center will gather an “accurate, impartial and indelible record of injustices, violence and atrocities which can serve not only as a deterrent but also as an honest starting point for future solutions,” said Rev. Olav Fykse Tveit, leader of the World Council of Churches, who spoke at the opening ceremony.
