The Nigeria Government has refuted claims that the country abuses religious freedom by the United States insisting that both Christians and Muslims are victims of terrorism in the country.
The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed in a statement described the allegation as a case of an honest disagreement between the two nations on the causes of violence in Nigeria.
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.
