The Supreme Council for Sharia in Nigeria says the worsening security measures across Nigeria, especially in the north is alarming, asserting that government effort in tackling the menace is grossly inadequate.
The Council raised the concern in a communique issued after its Pre-Ramadan/Shurah meeting held in Kaduna over the weekend and presided by the President, Dr Ibrahim Datti Ahmed.
Read and signed by Secretary General of the Council, Nafiu Baba Ahmed, the communique called on the government to braze up to its basic responsibility by reviewing the current security strategy, hold the security chiefs accountable for their actions and inaction.
It also called on the government to engage the leadership of the Fulanis, listen to their grievances and pay them compensation over losses of lives and herds of cattle to ensure peace and harmonious coexistence.
Muslims all over Nigeria are called upon to sustain prayers for peace and unity, while tasking Imams of Jumma’at Mosque to start reciting the Qunut for the improvement of security across Nigeria.
