During the Quarterly National Executive Council, NEC, meeting which held on Wenesday, July 9, 2014 in Makurdi, Benue State, the national president of the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor accused Boko Haram of trying to Islamise Nigeria
He said: “I symphatise with families that have lost their loved ones to the activities of Boko Haram in the country. Let me also inform that about 80 per cent of those killed are Christians.
“I agree that some of our Muslim brothers are also killed, but such groups of Muslims are those the Boko Haram think have betrayed them.
“The fact is that the hidden agenda of Boko Haram is to have an Islamic state in Nigeria as we now hear and see in Iraq and Syria. I think the insurgents are gradually advocating for a Jihad in Nigeria, which is not a good development for the country.”
