Alleged Christian persecution: FG not doing enough to end continuous trend –Amachree


In reaction to these attacks, the United States Senators have called for the re-designation of Nigeria as a country of particular concern because of alleged persecution of Christians.

The US Senators also berated the Nigeria government over what they described as failure to take meaningful steps to mitigate deteriorating insecurity in the country.

But responding to the allegation, the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, said the call was based on false premise and misunderstanding of what was going on in the country.

According to the minister, the only known group that targets Christians is the Islamic State’s West Africa Province.

He, however, said that the Federal Government had mounted a large scale military operations to wipe out the criminals and it was yielding results.

To shed more light on the situation, Dennis Amachree, Former Assistant Director at Department of State Services, joins me now, thank you very much for joining us.
