Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Lami Sadiq, Jos

The Na­tional chair­man, Coun­cil of Ulama of Jama’atul Iza­latul Bidia Wa Iqa­ma­tus Sun­nah (JIBWIS) Sheikh Sani Ya­haya Jin­gir, yes­ter­day con­demned Mon­day’s bomb blast in Abuja, call­ing on Mus­lims and Chris­tians to unite in prayers.

Jin­gir, who spoke in Jos, said the spate of killings in dif­fer­ent parts of north­ern Nigeria has be­come wor­ri­some and urged Mus­lims to fast on Mon­days and Thurs­days.

“If it is true that there are people con­spir­ing to de­stroy this coun­try then we must unite and say no to them, and if they are pub­lic of­fice hold­ers, whether chair­man, gover­nor or pres­i­dent, they must be re­moved from of­fice in or­der for the coun­try to be in peace,” he said.

He urged govern­ment of­fi­cials at all lev­els, re­li­gious and tra­di­tional lead­ers to be just and shun cor­rup­tion.
