Misguided clerics lead youths into insurgency–Lemu
King Faisal award recipient Sheikh Ahmed Lemu says he plans to work towards correcting the information imparted on youths by misguided clerics which results in the Boko Haram insurgency. Lemu spoke yesterday during a visit to Niger State Governor Mu’azu Babangida Aliyu.
“Some of members of the clergy, whether Islamic or Christians, do not know the content of their holy books nor are they prepared to follow the content and some of them are misleading their followers which lead to social problems”, he said.
In his remarks, the governor who expressed delight for the award said it is not only for Sheik Lemu but also for the state, being the second Nigerian to receive it after the late Sheikh Abubakar Gumi. He said the award would spur him to continue to contribute to the development of mutual understanding between Muslims and Christians.
