In today's edition of Perspectives Daily, we have a two-part special on a conversation with Archbishop Ignatius Ayau Kaigama of Jos, Nigera, about the state of the Catholic community in his country. In this first of a two-part interview, the archbishop reflects on the recent violence between  Muslim Fulani herdsmen and Christian farmers, and sheds light on the cause of the growing tension.
