Kenyan Muslim leaders have promised to form self-defence groups to protect churches from Terrorism attacks.

Adan Wachu, head of the Supreme Council of Kenyan Muslims  say Christians are a minority in their domain so they must be protected at all cost.

“There are people out there who are determined to make Kenya another Nigeria,” Mr Wachu, who also chairs the Inter-Religious Council of Kenya, told the BBC Network Africa programme.

“It’s not going to be allowed to have a sectarian division in this country – whoever wants to do that will of course fail.”

Mr Wachu said that at a meeting the Inter-Religious Council of Kenya on Tuesday it was unanimously agreed the church attacks were acts of “terrorists and terrorism”.

“Therefore we all resolved to stand together as one united front,” he said.
“We decided as solidarity that the Muslim youth will provide a vigilante service to the churches not only in Garissa but in any other places that the Christians may deem fit.”

Over fifteen people died over the weekend when terrorists attacked churches in Kenya.Fifteen people were killed in the raids on churches in Garissa, a town near the border with Somalia.
