Sultan of Sokoto condemns the act of the terrorsm in the country

The Sultan of Sokoto, Sa’ad Abubakar lll who happen to be one of the most respected traditional rulers in the country has commented on the ongoing nationwide attacks by Fulani herdsmen.

Sa’ad Abubakar lll who is also the president-General of the Jama’atul  Nasir Islam cautioned Nigerians not to brand terror attacks with in religious and ethnic garments.

He however said perpetrators must be when apprehended and made to face justice and to forestall a recurrence.

The Sultan said: “Jama’atu Nasril Islam received with great shock and deep concern the news of incessant killings and maiming of innocent lives and the destruction of public and private properties. Of particular concern is the brutal murder of people in Agatu, Benue State, Nnibo, Enugu State and some parts of Nasarawa State.  

“It is indeed alarming that within few weeks, deadly attacks were reportedly unleashed while the perpetrators go un-arrested.  

“We therefore call for a thorough investigation by appropriate agencies in order to fish out the evil perpetrators, bring them to justice and forestall recurrence.  

“It is indeed absurd and most unfortunate that certain groups or people ascribed the incidence to ethnic and/or religious premise and to whimsically apportion blame in order to batter the gradual restoration of peace and security in Nigeria.  

“We must thus be cautious of packaging crimes on religious and ethnic garments.”
