In the past few years, Nigeria has witnessed an upsurge in Islamic fundamentalism. From the interviews that I conducted in the North, what we are witnessing is not an accident but the culmination of carefully laid out plans to Islamize Nigeria. I was comforted and encouraged while meeting with a respected elder in Four Square Gospel Church yesterday and he informed me of a prophecy in the Scripture Union, years ago, that Nigeria will never be Islamized while the church is on earth. After the rapture, they can do whatever they want.

"We have heard how the LORD dried up the water of the Red Sea for you when you came out of Egypt, and what you did to Sihon and Og, the two kings of the Amorites east of the Jordan, whom you completely destroyed. When we heard of it, our hearts melted in fear and everyone's courage failed because of you, for the LORD your God is God in heaven above and on the earth below."—Joshua 2:10–11

In March 2007, a shocking story came out of Nigeria's Gombe state which drew worldwide attention. A Christian school teacher, Christiana Oluwatobi Oluseesin, a mother of two small children was brutally murdered.
