Unreached People Groups in Nigeria

<!-10 Most Needy Unreached People Groups in Nigeria
Unreached people group is a term used for a people group among which there is no indigenous community of believing Christians with adequate numbers and resources to evangelize themselves.
The concept became very popular as the church seek to pursue the fulfillment of the prophecy of John in Rev. 7:9 “… a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and in front of the Lamb”. A research of all the major people groups in the world was carried out and surprisingly,Out of about six billion people on earth, 1.2 billion(20% have not heard the gospel yet.). Out of 332000 known missionaries worldwide, 328000 work among the evangelised. Only 4000 work among the unreached people. That is a ratio of one missionary to every 300000 unreached people. 1739 people groups are still unreached several centuries after Jesus had come and paid the price for our redemption.
Out of these, 590 are from Africa and not less than 40 from Nigeria. No fewer than ten of the unreached people groups are listed among the chronic groups that have very insignificant number of Christians. Most of the ten do not even have a single person who is a Christian. This remind us of questions raised by Oswald J. Smith Why should some people be hearing the gospel over and over whereas others are not given the opportunity to hear about him once? This is nothing short of criminal negligence and a clear indication of the great omission of the great commission.
Below is the list of 10 of the over 20 chronic unreached people groups and their locations.
1. SHANGAWAS – Also known as the Kyengawa are among the descents of Kishera who left Badr near Mecca to escape Islam. They are found in Dendi, Bagudo and Yauri LGAs of Kebbi State. The only convert in Nigeria is reported to have gone back to Islam.
2. BUDUMA: Live on the shores of Lake Chad, No known Christian
3. BOLEWA – Fika and Nangere LGAs of Yobe State, and in Bauchi State, No known Christian
4. BUTAWAS – The Butawa live in Ningi LGA of Bauchi State, No known Christian

    I have been browsing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It is pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did,
    the web will be much more useful than ever before.
