Former vice president, Atiku Abubakar has faulted a claim by President Muhammadu Buhari that majority of Boko Haram victims are Muslims.

Buhari in an article published in Speaking Out, a guest opinion column for Christianity Today Magazine on Tuesday, said that the perception that members of the sect were always targeting Christians in Nigeria is not true.

“it is the reality that some 90 per cent of all Boko Haram’s victims have been Muslims,” Buhari said.

“They include a copycat abduction of over 100 Muslim schoolgirls, along with their single Christian classmate, shootings inside mosques; and the murder of two prominent imams.”

Reacting to Buhari’s claims on his Twitter page, Atiku said it was wrong of the Nigerian president to “rationalise” the deaths of those killed in Boko Haram attacks.

“We mustn’t rationalise killings. Whether Christian, Muslim, Traditionalist, or Atheist, the killing of any human being, by Boko Haram, or any misguided group is wrong and should be condemned unequivocally. There is no compulsion in religion. Only love,” Atiku tweeted.
