Some media reports about violence in Northern Nigeria are false: Archbishop Ben Kwashi


[Anglican Mainstream] 2 Dec 2008--We have heard foreign media report that about three hundred Muslims were killed by Christians, this is an old propaganda tactic against Christians in Jos using a carefully calculated system of reportage to always put the Christians on the defence.

1. This morning the government has reported an arrest of about 500 persons with dangerous weapons, some of them dressed in police and military uniforms. The government further confirmed that these people did not have to be provoked: the attacks began at the same time throughout the city of Jos and by 6am on Friday damage had been done to a lot of Christian businesses, homes, lives and Churches. When government was trying to take control of the situation, the carefully planned attacks moved to next level.
