Insecurity: JNI condemns upsurge in killings, blames politicians, says govt must act fast

*Calls on Muslims to seek Allah's intervention





The Jama’atu Nasril Islam, JNI, led by the Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar, has condemned the incessant killings by terrorists across the country.

The Muslim body also blamed the recent upsurge in killings and kidnappings across the country ahead of the 2023 general elections on unscrupulous politicians whom it accused of seeking to grasp power by first destabilising the nation.

The JNI, however, lamented the governments’ perceived inability to stop the carnage in the land.

Speaking to newsmen, the Secretary-General of the JNI, Dr. Khalid Abubakar-Aliyu, maintained that both the federal and state governments must wake up to their responsibilities of protecting the lives and property of Nigerians as enshrined in the constitution.

He said, “Once again, we condemn the repeated incidences of loss of precious lives and wanton destruction of property arising from well-coordinated attacks by terrorists in clear terms.

“We have always condemned these killings and never supported acts of terrorism. The whole country, especially the North, is invaded by armed terrorists and kidnappers who attack communities at will.

“It is most unfortunate that before general elections in the country, the trajectory of violent attacks goes up, because of the selfish ambitions of politicians who would stop at nothing including destabilising the country in order to increase their chances of attaining power.

“Why can’t our politicians play politics as it is done in other civilised countries? Our politicians must ensure that 2023 is not going to be business as usual.

“However, the fact that the authorities are perceived in some quarters as either helpless or uninterested in dealing decisively with these terrorists has added more confusion.

“So, we implore the government to take all genuine calls for an end to the killings in good fate so as to move the country forward as development in whatever guise, is utterly incomplete without security.

“We also call on the Muslim Ummah to use this spiritual month of Ramadan to intensify prayers, seeking Allah’s intervention for an end to these repeated killings, because prayers remain the most powerful instrument upon which we beseech Allah (SWT) for His intervention in dealing with our collective enemies.”
