Southern Kaduna killings: Sultan warns against inciting comments




The Jama’atu Nasril Islam (JNI), which is led by the Sultan of Sokoto, Mohammed Sa’ad Abubakar III, has warned Southern Kaduna leaders against making inflammatory comments.
The JNI in a statement signed by its Secretary-General, Khalid Aliyu, said such remarks would aggravate the crisis in the area.
The group also said it strongly believed that the politically-driven crisis was being deliberately turned into ethno-religious conflict of worrisome dimension.
The statement read in part: “The Jama’atu Nasril Islam, JNI, under the leadership of Alhaji Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar, the Sultan of Sokoto and its President-General, observed carefully with serious concern the unfortunate unfolding events of blood-letting and serial killings, as well as the resultant inflammatory commentaries being aired which are utterly condemnable in their entirety.
“We strongly believe that the politically-driven crisis is being deliberately turned into ethno-religious conflict of worrisome dimension. Thus, we call for caution and restraint from all parties involved.
“It should however, be noted that ethno-religious conflict isn’t easily manageable, hence, we must all rise to the occasion to forestall its recurrence in Kaduna state, as it is often said, a stitch in time saves nine!”
