Boko Haram kiIIing Christians to ignite religious crisis, says Lai Mohammed

Lest I am misunderstood, let me repeat: the insurgents, who delude themselves as Muslims whereas they are nothing more than blood-thirsty, rapacious k*llers who subscribe to no religion, have recently started targeting Christians with a view to sowing the seed of confusion between the two great religions.

Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed 
The minister of information and culture, Lai Mohammed, has said that Boko Haram is targeting Christians in an attempt to trigger a religious w*r in the country.

Recall that the insurgents had k*lled Lawan Andimi, chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) in Michika, Adamawa state, and Ropvil Dalep, a student of the University of Maiduguri and a member of the Church of Christ in Nations (COCIN) among others in at**cks perceived to be against Christians.



The minister, while addressing a press conference on Thursday, said although Boko Haram has also not stopped at**cking Muslims, it seems to now “have a deliberate policy of at**cking Christians.”

According to him, this strategy is coming after a renewed onslaught by “our tireless military against Boko Haram and their ISWAP allies in recent times.”

“They have started targeting Christians and Christian villages for a specific reason, which is to trigger a religious w*r and throw the nation into chaos,” he said.




“Apparently, they have realized how emotive and divisive religion can be, when exploited by unscrupulous persons.

“Lest I am misunderstood, let me repeat: the insurgents, who delude themselves as Muslims whereas they are nothing more than blood-thirsty, rapacious k*llers who subscribe to no religion, have recently started targeting Christians with a view to sowing the seed of confusion between the two great religions.


“This did not in any way signify that they have stopped at**cking Muslims. But they seem to now have a deliberate policy of at**cking Christians. Some have misinterpreted this to insinuate a systematic campaign to persecute Christians in Nigeria.

“This is absurd, and very unfair to the men and women who are daily battling the insurgents.”


The minister appealed to religious leaders not to fall for the tactics of the insurgents.

He said the “renewed vigour” by the military in the w*r against the insurgents “is paying off handsomely.”

“These include; the k*lling of top ISWAP leaders at two separate meeting venues at Marte local government in Borno state a few days ago,” Mohammed said.



“A similarly successful at**ck against the leadership of Boko Haram in Alafa Yagayaga in Borno earlier this month. The k*lling of Boko Haram chief Judge in Lake Chad.

“The in-fighting in the leadership cadre of Boko Haram is a fallout of the pressure on the insurgents by the military.”
