[Ed. – Yeah, everybody knows two wrongs make a right.]

The Muslim Students’ Society of Nigeria (MSSN) has faulted statement [sic] credited to United States President Donald Trump on the killing of Christians in Nigeria.

The Amir (President) of the MSSN in Lagos State, Dr Saheed Ashafa in a press statement said Trump’s statement would cause further division in Nigeria.

During Buhari’s visit to the Whiet [sic] House,Trump said the “killing of Christians in Nigeria was unacceptable” to the American government.

Reacting, Ashafa considered Trump’s comment as one-sided and uncomplimentary, warning Buhari to be cautious of relationship with the US.

The Muslim students’ leader alleged that Trump’s comment signalled his hatred for Muslims and Islam in Nigeria.

He said, “Trump’s offer shows that he is myopic and uncivilised. The pronouncement to help fight killings of Christians in a nation where innocent souls are wasted without recourse to their affiliations is a call to separatism.

“One would wonder if Trump is not aware or deliberately ignored the murder of several Muslims in a mosque at the University of Maiduguri, or those killed in mosques in Yobe and Zamfara; and many other parts of the country.
