Recently on Twitter, President Buhari appealed to Christians in Nigeria not to allow execution the Islamic State West Africa Province(ISWAP), turn them against Muslims.
The president said this in reaction to a fresh video released the terrorist group, showing the killing of some Christians in captivity. ISWAP said the government had failed to successfully negotiate their release, which led to their execution.
“We should, under no circumstance, let the terrorists divide us turning Christians against Muslims because these barbaric killers don’t represent Islam and millions of other law-abiding Muslims around the world.
“As a President, the collective security of all Nigerians is my major preoccupation and the death of an innocent Christian or Muslim distresses me.
“No true Muslim would be shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’ while killing innocent people, an evil frequently condemned the Holy Qur’an. These agents of darkness are enemies of our common humanity and they don’t spare any victim, whether they are Muslims or Christians, and therefore, we shouldn’t let them divide us and turn us against one another.”
