Nigeria: Plateau Muslims, Christians Pray for Peace

Plateau State indigenes residing in Abuja have prayed for the return of sustainable peace to the state. Muslims prayed Friday at the National Mosque, Abuja while their Christian counterpart prayed Sunday at the National Christian Centre, Abuja.

The events were organized by the state indigenes under the auspices of Plateau Indigenes Development Association, Abuja chapter.

Speaking at the Sunday event, the guest preacher, Rev Moses Chuwang spoke on the need for unity among various tribes and members of the two major religions on the plateau. "It is very dangerous that people in Jos now live in neighbourhoods based on their religious believes," he said.
