President Muhammadu Buhari said on Wednesday described terrorists attacking churches in the country as cowards, and vowed that they would not escape punishment for their crimes, IgbereTV reports
The President was reacting to last weekend’s killing of three worshippers at two churches in Kaduna.
The incident came just two weeks after gunmen killed 40 worshippers at St. Francis Catholic Church in Owo local government area of Ondo State.
In a statement issued by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, the President noted that the perpetrators of the attacks were wicked people trying to promote a religious crisis in the country.
Buhari said: “The enemies of the country are after destroying it because our religious freedom, our diversity, is what makes Nigeria great. It is this diversity that gives Nigeria its strength
