That this House calls on the Nigerian government to take immediate action to stop the relentless attacks on Christian communities that have seen thousands of people killed, Christian homes burned and many Christians' businesses looted and destroyed; notes the continuing silence and indecision of the Nigerian government over taking decisive action, which may be seen as encouragement to those carrying out these attacks; and calls for the Nigerian government to further investigate claims that there could well be some rogue elements in the security forces involved in the attacks.
