Nigerian Government replies US on violation of Religious Freedom

Nigerian Government replies US on violation of Religious Freedom (Updated: 2 years ago)


Nigerian government, on Tuesday, refuted claims by the United States of America, that the country abuses religious freedom, insisting that both Christians and Muslims are victims of terrorism in the country.

Lai Mohammed, Minister of Information and Culture, made the remark in a statement made available to DAILY POST.

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

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

However, Mohammed, in a statement by his Media Aide, Segun Adeyemi said: ”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.”

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