Northern Christians targets of killers, says Kukah
...Catholic buries murdered seminarian

Bishop of Sokoto Catholic Diocese, Matthew Kukah, has declared Christians in the north have become targets of killers.

He also said Nigeria under President Muhammadu Buhari has become a ship stranded on the high sea with broken navigational aids.

He spoke on Tuesday during the funeral service for Michael Nnadi, one of the seminarians kidnapped and later killed in Kaduna.

Declaring Christians in the north are marked men and women, Kukah said: “Yet, we must be ready to be washed in the blood of the lamb.”

Kukah in his Homily address, lamented years of hypocrisy, duplicity, fabricated integrity, false piety, empty morality, fraud and Pharisaism have caught up with Nigerians.

Kukah, who recalled the painful moment of negotiation with the kidnappers of the four young Seminarians and killing of Nnadi, noted with regret that, Christians in the north had for long become targets of killings by terrorists under the garb of Islam.

The Bishop while apparently reacting to the recent statement credited to President Muhammadu Buhari that 90 per cent of Boko Haram victims were Muslims, queried: “If your son steals from me, do you solve the problem by saying he also steals from you?”

According to him: “The persecution of Christians in northern Nigeria is as old as the modern Nigerian state. We are being told that this situation has nothing to do with religion.

“Really? It is what happens when politicians use religion to extend the frontiers of their ambition and power.

“Are we to believe that simply because Boko Haram kills Muslims too, they wear no religious garb? Are we to deny the evidence before us, of kidnappers separating Muslims from infidels or

compelling Christians to convert or die?


“If your son steals from me, do you solve the problem by saying he also steals from you? The persecution of Christians in northern Nigeria is as old as the modern Nigerian state.

“Their experiences and fears of northern, Islamic domination are documented in the Willinks Commission Report way back in 1956. It was also the reason why they formed a political platform called, the Non-Muslim League.

“All of us must confess in all honesty that in the years that have passed, the northern Muslim elites have not developed a moral basis for adequate power sharing with their Christian co-regionalists.

He added: “Our nation is like a ship stranded on the high seas, rudderless and with broken navigational aids.

“Today, our years of hypocrisy, duplicity, fabricated integrity, false piety, empty morality, fraud and Pharisaism have caught up with us. Nigeria is on the crossroads and its future hangs precariously in a balance.
