Nigeria Has No Policy Of Religious Persecution – FG



The Federal Government has come out to deny the allegation by the United States of engaging in systematic and egregious religious freedom violations.

The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed recently revealed this via a statement issued in Abuja.

According to him, Nigeria does not have a policy of religious persecution and the allegation is a case of an honest disagreement between the two nations on the causes of violence in Nigeria.

He added that victims of insecurity and terrorism in the country are adherents of Christianity, Islam and other religions.

His words, “Nigeria does not engage in religious freedom violation, neither does it have a policy of religious persecution.

β€œVictims of insecurity and terrorism in the country are adherents of Christianity, Islam and other religions.”
