In the 1990s, Imam Ashafa and Pastor Wuye led opposing militias in Northern Nigeria. Now the men work together bridging religious conflicts between Christians and Muslims that have killed thousands.

'My hate for the Muslims then had no limits' states Pastor Wuye, whose militia killed Imam Ashafa's spiritual leader and two cousins. Ashafa spent 3 years planning revenge, until one day, a sermon on forgiveness changed his life. The men met and are now working on a peace accord. Imam Ashafa explains, 'even though we differ in some theological issues, we will make the world a safer place'.
