Like other parts of the world, the Christian community living in Nigeria will observe Good Friday today (March 25th) to commemorate crucifixion of Jesus Christ two days before Easter.

Christians commemorate Jesus Christ’s crucifixion, which plays an important part in the Christian faith as they believe that Jesus came back to life and was raised from the dead, three days after his death on the cross.

They will attend special church services or prayer vigils. Good Friday is a day of mourning and quiet prayer for many Christians. The candles are often extinguished and statues, paintings and crosses may be draped in black, purple or gray cloth.

According to Christian faith, “This is an important event in Christianity, as it represents the sacrifices and suffering in Jesus’ life. The crucifixion is the culmination of a number of events in Holy Week including the triumphal return of Jesus to Jerusalem on Palm Sunday; the washing of the disciples’ feet by Jesus and the last supper on Maundy Thursday (Holy Thursday).”
