100 Muslims attend church service

In order to continue to foster peace between Muslims and Christians in Kaduna, some groups of Muslims have attended a church service to celebrate the Seventh anniversary of Christ Evangelical and Intercessory Fellowship Ministry.

Commenting on this visit by the Muslims, General Overseer of Christ Evangelical Intercessory Fellowship Ministry, Pastor Yohanna Buru, said that this means the animosity between both religions is gradually fading away.

He added that the church invited the Muslim groups so as to foster peace and religious tolerance between both Christians and Muslims. Buru pointed out that the only way for Muslims to understand that churches also preach peace and love is to actually attend the service.

“The Bible teaches Christians to love their neighbours and that is what we have done today,” he stressed.

He then urged everyone present to recognize each other as human being and live together in peace and harmony. He encouraged them to show each other love and support, just as they did before the state began being plagued by religious crisis.

In an interview with PM News after the service, held at Gbagyi Villa, Sabon-Tasha, Kaduna, Pastor Buru said the idea of creating such a platform to interact is to solve the problem of religious intolerance and crisis. He also added that a lot of Christians did not believe the Muslims would actually attend.

One of the Muslims who attended the service, Mohammed Isa, admitted that the service was an eye-opener for him and he now sees that there is no reason for both religions to continue to battle one another.
