Mr. Ibrahim stated that it had nothing against genuine peace advocates, but added that it opposed the spreading of falsehood. The Christian organization declared that there was no single church in Kaduna that faced any attack that warranted protection.

And we said it is not true, and we don’t want people to create panic and dishing out [an] inciting story,” the statement continued.
