American President, Donald Trump on Monday told President Muhammadu Buhari that the United States is against the killings of Christians in Nigeria.
Trump made the remarks in his welcome speech after expressing appreciation to Buhari for the visit.
Trump called on Buhari to account for unchecked atrocities against Christians in his country and also spoke on the killings coming from the ends of Boko Haram insurgents.
““Also 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,” he said.
Recall that Boko Haram has made headlines for murdering and terrorizing people in Nigeria, in this case President Buhari is allowing members of his own ancestral group — the Fulani — to attack innocent communities.
The unimpeded actions of “militant Fulani herdsmen,” are creating a humanitarian crisis of shocking proportions in Nigeria.
Indeed, most people have never even heard about this brutal group, which earlier this month executed an attack that killed 19 Christians in Benue State.
He also asked Buhari about what he had done with the issue of the kidnapped Nigerian girls, to which Buhari answered that Nigeria has not given up about their rescue, detailing the efforts of his administration to have them brought back.
Mean, President Buhari who narrated to Trump how he was able to secure the release of girls abducted in Dapchi, Yobe State thanked his host for agreeing to have America sell the Tucano Jets to Nigeria, for which $496m has so far been paid.
