Interfaith Peacemaker Teams in Nigeria stop election violence
The video on the left is from the local news broadcast in Gombe, Nigeria. During the elections in February and March, they mobilized for election monitoring and to stop election-related violence. They were successful. There were only 3 reported skirmishes on Gombe State, and no one was killed. Previously, in August 2022, the Governor of Gombe State gave OMNIA an award for helping mitigate violence across the state. In a region full of killings and kidnappings, Gombe state had 1 killing and no kidnappings, he said, and attributed it to the work of Interfaith Peacemaker Teams.
