The Sultan expressed that the concerns being raised by the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) over the treatment of Christians around the country are false.
Reacting to the statement, the former minister expressed that the monarch is wrong as he pointed out that Christians are not only being persecuted but also slaughtered in the country.
See his tweet below:
"It is a lie to say Christian's are being persecuted in Nigeria"-Sultan of Sokoto.
With respect your Majesty, you are wrong. To say that Christian's are being persecuted in Nigeria is actually an understatement. They are not just being persecuted, they are being slaughtered.
