Osun - Osun State chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria, has blamed the Buhari-led government for the incessant killings of Christians in the northern part of the country, Punch reports.
The Chairman of the chapter, Rev. Elisha Ogundiya, said this in Osogbo on Wednesday at a programme organised by the Nigerian Union of Journalists Correspondents’ Chapel, Osun State, to mark the 25th anniversary of the creation of the state.
