In response to calls by the Christian Association of Nigeria, the Presidency has given an assurance that the government was working hard to secure the release of all hostages taken by Boko Haram.
In a statement, the Presidency called for caution, urging Nigerians not to fall for the plan of terrorists to divide Nigeria on religious lines.
CAN had, in a statement by its President, Dr Samson Ayokunle, warned about grave dangers, alleging that the Boko Haram and the Islamic State West Africa Province were working together, attacking more Christian villages.
It could be recalled that on Christmas Day 2019, ISWAP executed 11 hostages, ten of whom were Christians, to avenge the death of their leaders
