Lagos State Council Missioner, Ansar-ud-Deen Society of Nigeria, Sheikh Zakariyyah Muhammadu Thanni, has urged Nigerians to consider the business of security as the business of every individual stating that government cannot do it alone.
Sheikh Muh’d Thanni stated this while responding to questions from Vanguard on the recent abduction of 110 girls in Dapchi, Yobe State during the inauguration of Adamo branch of the society in Adamo, Ikorodu, Lagos state recently.
According to him: “The security of lives and property should be everybody’s business and not just for the government alone. We should not indulge in anything that will breach the peace of our environment. Islam teaches peace. The Prophet emphatically stated that anyone that breaches the peace of his brother, is not a Muslim.
He added that all those deviants called Ash-shabbab, Al-Qaeda, ISIS, Boko Haram are not Muslims by the teachings of our religion. Their ideology is not part of Islam,” he said.
In the same vein, Alhaji AbdulFatai Akintayo,Vice Chairman, Lagos Council urged government to do everything possible to secure the release of the school girls quickly.
On the inauguration of Adamo branch, Alhaji Akintayo said the islamic organisation now has 37 branches in Lagos state. “That Ansar-ud-Deen has extended to Adamo, is remarkable. It is a great one for us and we pray it will not be the last for us.”
