Information Minister, Lai Mohammed has said that terror group, Boko Haram are now targeting Christians.
Lai Mohammed stated this while he was addressing newsmen in Abuja the nations capital.
He said Boko Haram “have a deliberate policy of attacking Christians.
“They have started targeting Christians and Christian villages for a specific reason, which is to trigger a religious war and throw the nation into chaos.
“This did not in any way signify that they have stopped attacking Muslims. But they seem to now have a deliberate policy of attacking Christians. Some have misinterpreted this to insinuate a systematic campaign to persecute Christians in Nigeria.”
Going further, Lai Mohammed asked religious leaders “not to fall for this desperate move by the insurgents.”
