Wednesday, United States military drones are searching for nearly 300 school girls in Nigeria. Almost a month ago, Islamic extremists in the northern part of the country kidnapped the girls. A massive search and rescue effort has been underway to retrieve the girls. Wednesday, News 25 sat down with a local priest from Nigeria. The priest explained that Nigeria is a very large and diverse country and for the most part, Muslims and Christians live in peace there.

Father Joseph Oku says, “There is some problem in the north, and even in the north, many of the Muslims are good. It is just this small group of extremists that are causing a lot of problems and tensions.” Father Oku says he is praying for peace in his home country.
