Atiku Abubakar faults President Buhari’s claims that more Muslims are killed by Boko Haram


Presidential candidate of Peoples Democratic Party in the 2019 presidential election, Atiku Abubakar, has faulted claims by President Muhammadu Buhari, that more Muslims are killed by Boko Haram.

Atiku made his position known in a tweet.

While replying to a report on Buhari’s claim, Atiku tackled Buhari for being concerned with the religion of the victims.

He said the activities of Boko Haram should be condemned out rightly regardless of the victims’ faith.

The President had claimed that it is not true that the Boko Haram insurgency had claimed the lives of more Christians than Muslims.

He argued that the contrary was the case, insisting that 90 per cent of deaths from attacks by the terrorists were Muslims.
