Leaders of the Christian Association of Nigeria in the north have told President BUHARI to rescue Christian girls from forced marriages.
At a meeting with the president in the villa, the Association urged President BUHARI to intervene in the issue of the abduction of underage Christian girls for marriage.
YAKUBU PAM, Chairman of the Northern zone of CAN told newsmen after the meeting that they were in Aso Rock to tell the president some of the challenges that northern Christians are passing through.
According to him and I quote, “One of these challenges is the issue of girl-child abduction in the north. In some northern states, young girls and children are being abducted at the age of twelve and the parents will just hear that the girls have been married off to traditional rulers and emirs,” end of quote.
YAKUBU PAM also said Christians were having difficulties in expressing their faith in the northern part of the country as well as the situation with the Fulani herdsmen.
PAM said President BUHARI to look into their complaints.
