Christians, Muslims Are Children Of Abraham And Must Not Be Divided By Boko Haram – Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari has cautioned Muslims and Christians in Nigeria against allowing Boko Haram insurgents and other forms of terrorists to divide them as they are all children of Abraham.
In a statement he personally signed on February 17 marking the second anniversary of the abduction of 110 innocent children from the town of Dapchi In Borno State, Buhari vowed that his government would continue to seek to secure the release of all children and captives of terrorists, adding: “and we do so regardless of their creed or the name of their creator.”
The President who recalled that 107 survived the ordeal and have since returned to their families, except Leah Sharibu, noted that she is still in the hands of the terrorists who refused to release her because she would not renounce her Christian faith.
“We say, as the government for and of all Nigerians, that no person has the right to force another to change their faith against their will and that all life is sacred.
“As we as redouble our efforts for Leah’s return, we can never allow the terrorists to divide us – Christian against Muslim, Muslim against Christian. We are all Sons of Abraham. And all Nigerians have the same worth and rights before the law, and before God.”
