Reno Omokri has written the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, to ask President Muhammadu Buhari why there has been no punishment over the killing of over hundreds of Shiites.
Omokri advised the cleric to get answers from Buhari, saying that the Anglican Church which he represents may suffer same fate someday and that he would be a hypocrite if he spoke then.
The former presidential aide wrote on his Facebook page on Sunday:
“Dear Most Reverend Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury.
“Sir, when next you visit Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari, could you please ask him why no one has been punished for the deaths of 347 Shiite men, women, children and infants on his watch on December 15, 2015?
“Why do you continue to affirm the man who has treated the deaths as though it was nothing? Why the silence of the world?
“Civilians died in a war situation in Aleppo and the world gets agitated. Civilians died in Zaria where there is no war and the world accepts it. Is it because they are Shiites?
“Are the Shiites not children of God? Do their lives not matter as much as President Buhari’s life? Remember that the Good Samaritan was not a Jew.
“He was a Samaritan, the enemy of the Jews. If you still keep quiet and one day (God forbid) Nigerian Anglicans are killed (killings in churches are not infrequent in Nigeria), how can you speak up against the killings without appearing to be a hypocrite?”
