The Presidency has said the recent killings of Christians in Zamfara State

is not the business of President Mohammadu Buhari.
Mr. Femi Adesina, Presidential Spokesman told a team of Broadcast

Journalists that though the killings are an act of criminality, Nigeria

runs a Federalism and so the President cannot be held responsible for such

crimes.
Asked what the President intends to do to curb the incessant killings of

Christians in the Northern part of Nigeria, Adesina said: “The Zamfara

Governor has said those killed are not only Christians, they are Muslims

too.”
According to him, “it happened in a state and we run a federalism. That

state has the primary responsibility of bringing the perpetrators to

book.”
The Presidency's new position is a departure from tweets from the official

Twitter handle of President Buhari which condemned the kilings, promising

to bring the perpetrators to justice.
Recall that no fewer than eight persons were killed recently in

Talata-Mafara community in Zamfara State after violence erupted over

alleged blasphemy against Islam by a student of Abdu Gusau Polytechnic,

Talata-Mafara.
The student was alleged to have made a blasphemous statement against

Islam and Prophet Muhammad and was consequently attacked by a mob.

The boy was said to have been beaten to pulp by the mob. The man, whose

name was simply given as Tajudeen, took him in his car and rushed him to a

hospital.
A witness said the mob, angered by Tajudeen's act, moved to his house, set

it on fire and killed eight persons.
