The Sultan of Sokoto while speaking at the closing ceremony of 77th annual Islamic vacation course (IVC) organised by the Muslim Society of Nigeria (MSSN) at Bayero University Kano, said a recent claim by CAN on Christians being prosecuted is “false and partial”.
Sultan of Sokoto said,
If such persecution really exists, such is supposed to be tabled at the Interfaith Forum where Muslims and Christians leaders meet periodically to discuss issues that would promote harmonious coexistence between the two religions. Many Fulanis are atheists whose main interest is to protect their cattle.”
Reacting to the statement of the Sultan on Thursday, Fani-Kayode wrote:
“With respect to your Majesty, you are wrong. To say that Christians are being persecuted in Nigeria is actually an understatement. They are not just being persecuted, they are being slaughtered.
