Okoh calls for united front against Boko Haram

The Primate of the Church of Nigeria, the Most Rev. Nicholas Okoh has called on all Nigerians to unite against the threat from Boko Haram. “Let everybody east, west, north, south, Christian, Muslims, African traditional religionists, let’s put hands together and stop this terrorism. Nobody is spared, nobody is free, nobody is safe,” the archbishop said in the wake of 23 July 2014 bombing in Kaduna which killed 70 people. Speaking in Abuja last week to reporters, he stated that he supported the measured response taken by the government in freeing schoolgirls kidnapped by the terror group in May.  A military response to the kidnapping was dangerous as “all those girls will all be dead.” He supported a strategy of the government taking “its time to rescue these people the way it knows how to and bring them back alive,” he told the Daily Times.
