DAILY FILE, KADUNA – Jama’atu Nasril Islam (JNI), under the leadership of His Eminence, Alhaji Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar, has expressed sadness over killings in Zamfara state, asking where is the government, security agencies,religious and other leaders.
Dr. Khalid Abubakar, Secretary-General, JNI, in a statement on Tuesday, said the Zamfara state carnage has now claimed uncountable number of lives and destruction of properties, and has continued unabated for years.
JNI statement reads “Jama’atu Nasril Islam (JNI), under the leadership of His Eminence, Alhaji Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar, CFR, mni, the Sultan of Sokoto and President-General, JNI, painfully expresses deep concern over making some parts of Zamfara state a theater of dehumanisation and
” desecration of the sanctity of life, properties, personal liberty and communal integrity, by wanton destruction of lives and properties, as well as terrorizing communities”
“This is utterly reprehensible and unacceptable, for hooligans and way-wards to hold a whole state to ransom to no avail. Where is the government? Where are the security agencies? Where are the political, community and religious leaders? Where is our conscience? Where is the humanness in us? Above all, where is our Islam? Where is the Qur’an and its pristine teachings? Where is the Prophetic guidance in his Sunnah?
“Equally painful is the return of insurgency in some parts of Borno and Yobe states, with wanton destruction of lives and properties. Why must all these bloodletting be allowed to resurface? All these re-occurring acts of terrorism, dehumanisation, sacrilege of sanctity of life and all forms of wickedness are utterly and unreservedly condemned in their entirety and government must go beyond mere condemnations”
The Zamfara state carnage has now claimed uncountable number of lives and destruction of properties, and has continued unabated for years. What then is the essence of government and security outfits? We should all be reminded that, that was how Boko Haram insurgency started and it has now snowballed into a full blown security threat to the nation! We must not see it as a face up to Zamfara state, as already spillover of it, has been witnessed in Kaduna, Niger, Sokoto Kebbi and Katsina states in the name of armed banditry and kidnappings”
It is so disheartening that after attacks are lunched on settlements, sporadic gun shots follow and then setting the communities ablaze ensues in Zamfara state. Where is the humanity in us? This is very bothersome and calls for realistic investigation that must bring similar occurrence(s) to a final end”
It is hardly imaginable that such pusillanimous and evil acts could still occur in Zamfara state, despite frequent assurances by government and so called security briefings said to be received, yet those charged with the responsibility of protecting the citizenry have not been able to curb the diabolical scourge of killing innocent souls. This is indeed very alarming”
“However, as Muslims we find solace that Allah, The Mighty is ever watchful of the plethora of the evils of the wicked and will requite them appropriately”
“It should however be noted that the evil that men do lives after them, and will continue to hunt them. Nonetheless, JNI will continue to ask questions: Who are the blood thirsty fellows? Why have they been allowed for years? Why have they not been arrested and interrogated? What has been the motive behind such repeated scandalous acts? Isn’t intelligence gathering supposed to aid security operatives and why is it not yielding the desired results? Why the renewed attacks now, just few months before the 2019 General Elections? Must innocent bloods be split before every election in Nigeria? Isn’t the government ashamed that it cannot provide statutory responsibility of providing security to its citizenry? Why have the political gladiators in Zamfara state and beyond resort to exchanging unsavory words instead of resolving the matter? Indeed there is much more than meets the eyes” JNI said.
