Guttschuss on Sectarian Violence in Central Nigeria

nigeria1213_reportcoverIn December 2013, Eric Guttschuss (APF board member and Andrews University graduate) wrote a report for Human Rights Watch on the sectarian violence in central Nigeria–“Leave Everything to God.”

This 146-page report which includes a photo essay, is based on interviews with more than 180 witnesses and victims of violence in Plateau and Kaduna states, as well as police investigators, prosecutors, defense lawyers, judges, and community leaders. A Human Rights Watch researcher conducted site visits to scenes of major violence, sometimes just days after a massacre, collected and analyzed court documents, and attended some of the court proceedings in Jos, the capital of Plateau State.
