Lai Mohammed, minister of information, has criticised Matthew Mukah, Catholic bishop of Sokoto diocese, for comparing the federal government to the Boko Haram sect.

In a statement on Friday, Mohammed said such comparison is capable of dividing Nigeria.

He had also said instead of tackling insurgency, the federal government had been providing an enabling environment for them to operate freely.

He said Kukah’s comment is “not only disingenuous, but also a great disservice to the men and women in uniform who are daily battling the Boko Haram and ISWAP terrorists to keep all Nigerians safe.”

The Federal Government has advised Bishop Matthew Kukah to use his
high ecclesiastical office to work for religious harmony in Nigeria rather than indulge in actions that are capable of dividing the country along religious lines.

“The statement credited to Bishop Kukah, in which he compared the Federal Government with Boko Haram, is not only disingenuous, but also a great disservice to the men and women in uniform who are daily battling the Boko Haram and ISWAP terrorists to keep all Nigerians safe.

“The Minister reiterated the federal government’s position that the Boko Haram and ISWAP terrorists do not subscribe to any religion, irrespective of their pretense to such, but are driven by their primitive propensity to kill mindlessly and destroy without restrain, irrespective of their victims’ creed, gender or tribe.

”To now attribute the actions of these mad bunch to an orchestrated and systematic plan to elevate one religion over the other or decimate adherents of a particular religion is not only unfortunate but divisive, incendiary and insensitive.”
