FG refutes US’ claims of religious freedom abuses in Nigeria

0 126

The federal government of Nigeria has refuted claims by the United States of America, that the country abuses religious freedom.

It insisted that both Christians and Muslims are victims of terrorism in the country.

Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, stated this in a statement released to newsmen by his Media Aide, Segun Adeyemi.

Mohammed described the allegation as a case of honest disagreement between the two nations on the causes of violence in Nigeria.

”Nigeria does not engage in religious freedom violation, neither does it have a policy of religious persecution. Victims of insecurity and terrorism in the country are adherents of Christianity, Islam and other religions,” the minister said.

He further said that Nigeria jealously protects religious freedom as enshrined in the country’s constitution and takes seriously any infringements in this regard.

Recall that US had blacklisted Nigeria over religious violence and lack of freedom.
