Following the unending gun and bomb attacks in the country, an Islamic group on Wednesday condemned the activities of the Boko Haram sect.
The group, Nawair-Ud Deen Society of Nigeria, Abuja branch advised the Federal Government and security agencies to search for Boko Haram members outside the Mosque and desist from interrupting religious activities of the faith.
The Chief Imam of the Society in Abuja, Dr. Nurain Taiwo Dindi, who made the call at a Laitatul Quadri Night of Majesty prayer for Muslim faithful, marking the last days of the holy month of Ramadan, said the activities of the Boko Haram sect has equally affected the act of worship in Mosque.
He urged President Goodluck Jonathan and the political class to put a stop to what he described as the continuous and mindless bloodshed by the group.
“The unabated and misguided attacks on innocent citizens by the Boko Haram sect are unacceptable. We therefore called on government to immediately contain the activities of the sect. It is the responsibility of government to guarantee security of live and property of its citizen.
“The agitations and activities of the sect is un-Islamic, no true Muslim will undertake the kind of responsibilities the sect has entrusted itself with,” he stated.
The cleric called on the sect to give up their course or face the wrath of Allah.
On the need for peace and tranquillity in the country, Dindi appealed to Nigerians, irrespective of tribe, ethnicity and religion to commit themselves to genuine repentance in the spirit of Ramadan.
