Kaduna – Malam Lukman Salaudeen, the Deputy Chief Imam, Nupe Road Central Mosque, Kaduna, has condemned the recent bomb blasts in Jos and Kano.
Salaudeen described the attacks that claimed dozens of lives, as devilish, barbaric, and a negation of peace and progress.
He made the condemnation in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Kaduna shortly after the Friday prayers.
“Those killers should be afraid of Almighty Allah, no religion asked them to kill innocent souls for just no cause.
“We all must come together to fight insurgency because the devils hide under religion to kill innocent citizens.
“Boko Haram are not Muslims and are not following the teachings of Islam which preach peace, love and development, and not killing of innocent people,” he said.
The cleric urged both Muslims and Christians to pray for the release of the over 200 abducted school girls in Chibok, Borno, and for those that lost their loved ones during the insurgency.(NAN)
