President Donald Trump of the United States has made it known to President Muhammau Buhari that his country will not accept the killing of Christians which is currently going on in Nigeria.
Donald Trump made this known while playing host to his Nigerian counterpart at the White House on Monday.
“We have had very serious problems with Christians who are being murdered in Nigeria, we are going to be working on that problem very, very hard because we cannot allow that to happen,” Trump said.
On his part, President Buhari said he was working towards putting a stop to the killings perpetrated by the Fulani Herdsmen. He also thanked the US government for approving the sale of military hardware to Nigeria.
The attack from the Fulani herdsmen took a different dimension when gunmen invaded a Catholic church in Benue state last week, killing two priests and 17 worshipers.
Condemning the attack the Pope prayed for Christians while conducting a mass in Rome on Sunday after a visit from Nigeria Bishops whom he met at the Vatican.
The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) had staged a nationwide protest against the killings on Sunday calling for an end to it.
