Following his comments on Christians being members of the dreaded terror Group, the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), has asked Babagana Zulum, the Borno State governor, to post video evidence of his claim.

General Secretary of the religious group, Joseph Daramola, during an interview with The PUNCH on Monday, asked the governor to stop the mudsliding, as members of the group have appeared in several videos, showing the religion they practice.

Zulum had last week during an event organized by the Nigeria Bar Association in Lagos, alleged that there are Whitemen, Asians and Christians who are Boko Haram members.

The governor had said, “I’m from Borno State, and many of our children are into Boko Haram. I’m not denying the fact. But again, they are being sponsored by many people across the world. Among Boko Haram, we have white men, Asians, Africans, Muslims and Christians.

Reacting on Monday, Daramola cautioned the governor.

He said, “Anyone who accuses the other must be able to prove it. For the governor to say such, then he must have evidence. Let him post the photo and video evidence on social media of Christians who are Boko Haram members. I don’t think there should be any fuss. Anybody can say anything.

“We have seen them (Boko Haram) on videos carrying flags and identifying themselves. So, let these criminals that the governor knows identify themselves as criminals. It is that simple. Nobody should mud-sling. It is a very bad thing. Whether they are Christians or Muslims, the act is very bad on its own and should be condemned.”

Daramola said no Christian would carry such weapons as used by Boko Haram members to kill fellow human beings.

“No Christian will carry those weapons to kill fellow humans. The commandments of God explicitly stated that thou shall not kill and you don’t kill either physically or any form. Christians that are Christians will never engage in that. If Zulum has his facts, let him put it out.”
