The National President of Youth Wing of Christian Association of Nigeria (YOWICAN), Engr. Daniel David Kadzai, has said that the serial coordinated killings going on in Christians dominated towns in the northern region is full jihad declared on Christians In the country.

Kadzai who spoke to journalists at the Yola International Airport yesterday said the 'fabrication' of the term 'herdsmen' was a 'cover up' by government to shield the perpetrators of the 'jihadist' activities.

He pointed out that the different reasons given for the killings by President Muhammadu Buhari and his security chiefs is a confirmation that government knows those carrying out the genocide "against Christians", but is fabricating fake reasons as decoy.

"The Inspector- General of Police Ibrahim Idris, said that it is farmers/herdsmen-clash, the minister of Defence Mansur Dan- Ali, said that it is  blockage of cattle routes, President Buhari told his foreign host that it is fighters from Libya that are carrying out the genocide against Nigerian Christians.

"The questions is if it is fighters from Libya why is the President not declaring them terrorists?

"The different narration of the security chiefs on the killings is a clear testimony that this government is shielding the jihadists," he stated.

Kadzai regretted that Christians' statements on the killing of their fellows are viewed by government officials as a confrontation against Buhari's administration while similar statements from Muslim leaders receive applause, a situation he said has given the Christian leaders in the country a "clear indication" that the perpetrators are getting government backing.

"When former chief of army staff Lt General TY Danjuma( rtd) said that Nigerians should defend themselves, because the military are conniving with the killers to slaughter Nigerians, government said he should be probe, but the same and more dangerous statements were made by Miyitti Allah leader, Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, and the Sultan of Sokoto Abubakar Sa'ad, but government did not order for probe, so under Buhari's government only your religion gives you the right to speak even on issues affecting your people," the YOWICAN leader stated.

Kadzai noted that the "selective negotiation" of the release of Muslim Dapchi girls and abandoning the only Christian girl, Leah Sharibu, in the "den" of her captors as well as the "lopsided appointments" and budgetary allocations to Muslim institutions has confirmed the "Islamization agenda" of Buhari's government.

"In the 2018 budget National Hajji Commission got N239 billion, the Christians Pilgrimage Commission got N21 billion only , this shows that the Muslims population is 85 percent above the Christians, government also voted N800 million for Arabic and Islamist studies , but no one naira is voted for Christians studies, so how can a mentally balance person said that Buhari government has no Islamization agenda," he stated. 

Kadzai urged Christians leaders especially in President Buhari government to stand up and defend their Christians brothers and sisters before they are cleared by the Jihadists.
