The Secretary General of the Arewa Consultative Forum, Mr Anthony Sani , insisted on Thursday that no true Muslim could desecrate Islam in the name for killing human beings for God .
The ACF scribe stated this while reacting to the assertion made by the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd . ), that 90 per cent of victims of Boko Haram attacks were Muslim .
Sani said the insurgents could not be said to be targeting Christians in their terror attacks.
He noted that the insurgents ’ resort to religion was for strategic reasons meant to attract the gullible as cannon fodder.
Sani said though he did not have the exact figures , he agreed that most Boko Haram members were Muslims and from the North- East.
He added , “ The sect do not target only Christians but also Muslims who they believe are not willing to adhere to their version of Islam , even though we all know Boko Haram is not pursuing any jihad but in search of mundane things like political power.
“ Their resort to religion is for strategic reasons meant to attract the gullible as canon fodders .
That was why President (Barack ) Obama once made a clear distinction between Islam and Islamic terrorism , which desecrates Islam .
“ No true Muslim can desecrate Islam by killing people for God , who does not need anybody to kill for Him .
I want to believe Boko Haram is a common enemy to all Nigerians. ”
