A Muslim group, popularly called the Shiites, on Saturday attended a Christmas church service at HEKAN Church in Zaria, Kaduna State, as part of an effort to strengthen religious tolerance and peace in the state.
The Muslim group also presented a gift to the church as a sign of love.
Speaking in an interview with newsmen, shortly after the service, the leader of the team, Prof. Isa Mshelgaru said the essence of attending the service was to promote love, tolerance and understanding among Nigerians.
He said: “We decided to attend this church service today because today is Christmas Day, a day that the birth of Jesus Christ is being celebrated over the globe and we feel that we also have our concern to share with them the feelings of the day Jesus was born.”
