Muslim youths protect Christians during Christmas service in Kaduna

Pastor Yohanna Buru, a cleric of Christ Evangelical Church, Sabon Tasha,Kaduna South disclosed that over 200 Muslim youth volunteers were part of those protecting Christians during church services on Christmas day.

He expressed his gratitude over the protection given to them by the Muslim brothers.

He further noted that the initiative was an indication that peace had come to stay in the state.

Buru said the measure will strengthen a lasting peace between the two religions.
