According to report reaching oyogist.com, Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), has challenged the Governor of Borno State, Babagana Zulum, to price his claims of Christians whom he claims are part of Boko Harm members.
This was made known by the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) General Secretary, Joseph Daramola, during an interview with PUNCH.
In the words of Governor Zulum, he said; “I’m from Borno State, and many of our children are into Boko Haram. I’m not denying the fact. But again, they are being sponsored by many people across the world. Among Boko Haram, we have white men, Asians, Africans, Muslims and Christians.”
Reacting to the Governors statement, CAN said, “Anyone who accuses the other must be able to prove it. For the governor to say such, then he must have evidence. Let him post the photo and video evidence on social media of Christians who are Boko Haram members. I don’t think there should be any fuss. Anybody can say anything.
“We have seen them (Boko Haram) on videos carrying flags and identifying themselves. So, let these criminals that the governor knows identify themselves as criminals. It is that simple. Nobody should mud-sling. It is a very bad thing. Whether they are Christians or Muslims, the act is very bad on its own and should be condemned.
Daramola further noted that “no Christian will carry those weapons to kill fellow humans. The commandments of God explicitly stated that thou shall not kill and you don’t kill either physically or any form. Christians that are Christians will never engage in that. If Zulum has his facts, let him put it out.”
