Muslim group says that President Trump is ‘uncivilized’ for call to end killing of Christians in Nigeria. Trump raised the issue of persecution of Christians in Nigeria in a meeting with Nigerian president Muhammad Buhari, whose ancestral group is responsible for many of the atrocities.
Washington Times While the Muslim extremist group Boko Haram has received most of the attention in Nigeria, little notice has been paid to militant herdsmen of the Fulani people who have been responsible for killing Christians and others. Earlier this month, 19 Christians were killed in an attack. In the past year, there have reportedly been more than 600 deaths due to Fulani unrest, including the burning of churches and homes, rapes and kidnappings.
Terror News Network The Muslim Students’ Society of Nigeria (MSSN) has faulted statement credited to United States President Donald Trump on the killing of Christians in Nigeria.
The Muslim students’ leader alleged that Trump’s comment signalled his hatred for Muslims and Islam in Nigeria. He said, “Trump’s offer shows that he is myopic and uncivilized. The pronouncement to help fight killings of Christians in a nation where innocent souls are wasted without recourse to their affiliations is a call to separatism.
