JIBWIS al­leges at­tacks tar­geted to elim­i­nate Mus­lims

Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Atika Balal, Katsina

Na­tional Chair­man of Jama’atul Iza­latil Bid’ah Wa’iqa­ma­tus Sun­nah (JIBWIS) Sheik Ab­dul­lahi Bala Lau has al­leged most of the killings in north­ern part of Nigeria were part of an agenda to de­stroy Mus­lims in the re­gion.

Sheik Lau who spoke at a press con­fer­ence or­ga­nized by JIBWIS in Katsina said the Boko Haram in­sur­gency was a thing of the past and that the present sit­u­a­tion was part of a ma­li­cious con­spir­acy to erad­i­cate Mus­lims across the coun­try.

He said Nigeria was mov­ing in an ab­nor­mal man­ner due to the bias lead­er­ship style of the federal govern­ment against north­ern Mus­lims.

He said: “We are in a bad era of lead­er­ship in the coun­try and only prayers can solve the prob­lem since the govern­ment has failed, par­tic­u­larly in the area of se­cu­rity.”

He added that the only way out was for Mus­lims to en­gage in se­ri­ous prayers and fast­ing if peace is to be re­stored to the coun­try.

“The sit and look at­ti­tude of the federal govern­ment to­wards the re­cent kid­nap of over 100 girl stu­dents in Chi­bok is an in­di­ca­tion of a failed govern­ment, “he said.

Lau said even the lead­er­ship of Chris­tians As­so­ci­a­tion of Nigeria (CAN) has stopped blam­ing the killings on Mus­lims, adding that the govern­ment is hid­ing un­der the um­brella of Boko Haram to kill in­no­cent Mus­lims.

He said: “The re­cent let­ter of for­mer Pres­i­dent Obasanjo to Pres­i­dent Jonathan “be­fore it is too late” has cap­tured what is re­ally hap­pen­ing in the coun­try.”

He said the as­so­ci­a­tion will not fold its arms to watch the ma­li­cious agenda against Mus­lims, adding that it will con­tinue to de­mand jus­tice for Sheik Auwal Al­bani who was killed last Fe­bru­ary.
