Welcome to ICIPH
International Centre for Interfaith, Peace & Harmony (ICIPH) provides a channel for both Local and International Communities to receive accurate information about situation in Nigeria.
The idea behind establishment of a specialized Interfaith Center in Nigeria to address inter-religious conflicts was borne out of a fact-finding mission undertaken in May 2012 by an international delegation of Muslim and Christian leaders led by the World Council of Churches (WCC) and the Royal Jordanian Aal Al-Bayt Institute of Islamic Thought [RABIIT]. According to the “Fact-finding Report”, the delegation’s visit was proposed in reaction to the numerous incidents of fierce inter-communal strives which tremendously affected the lives of Nigerians during the period 2000 to 2012, especially knowing that -at least since the Bosnian war of 1993 to 1995- Nigeria is the only country in the world where most severe inter-communal violence between Christians and Muslims was experienced.
