The leader of Nigeria's Christians this week issued a "final" warning to the government that it must bring an end to the attacks by the radical Muslim group Boko Haram, or Christians may be forced to take matters into their own hands, AFP reports. "I will now make a final call to the Nigerian government to use all resources available to it to clearly define and neutralize the problem as other nations have done," said Ayo Oritsejafor, head of the Christian Association of Nigeria. "The church leadership has hitherto put great restraint on the restive and aggrieved millions of Nigerians, but can no longer guarantee such cooperation if this trend of terror is not halted immediately." Boko Haram has killed almost 500 people this year alone, the majority of them Christians in Nigeria's predominantly Muslim north.
