Archbishop Ben Kwashi

In an article published by Christianity Today in November 2014, Kwashi strongly countered the assertion by U.S. President Barack Obama that terrorism is the result of poverty and specifically demanded that the activities of Boko Haram be acknowledged as examples of Islamic extremism – this even before Boko Haram publicly pledged alliance with ISIS.
