The sultan of Sokoto, Abubakar Muhammad has told leaders of Southern Kaduna not to make inciting comments concerning the crisis rocking the region.

This is contained in a statement issued by the Khalid Aliyu, the Secretary-General, Jama’atu Nasril Islam (JNI), presided over by the sultan.

He also lamented the dimension of religion which the formerly political crisis has taken.

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!”
