Message to Buhari: Concrete Steps Must Be Taking Over Kidnapping, Insecurity – Muslim Group

Take concrete steps towards reversing the ugly trend of kidnappings and banditry in the country, the Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA) urges the Federal Government.

It was disclosed on Saturday in a statement signed by its Head of Public Affairs, Mr. Aselemi Ibrahim, in Abuja, NAN reports.

He said the council has critically assessed the state of the nation during its 7th expanded general-purpose committee meeting and expressed concern over the spread of kidnappings, banditry, and bloodletting in the country.

Ibrahim therefore, advised the federal government, security agencies, and relevant stakeholders to redouble their efforts towards reversing the ugly trend.

He said the council commended the government’s decision to create Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs and Disaster Management and Social Development to coordinate interventions in the given areas.

“It is our view that there is a strong relationship between poverty and insecurity, this view is reinforced by the saying that a hungry man is an angry man.


“We, therefore, urge the government to provide resources for the ministry to actualize the needed interventions to make life more meaningful to Displaced Persons and the less privileged,” he said.

However, he urged Nigerians to desist from spreading hate speech and fake news in the name of freedom of speech.

He said the council urged Nigerians to exercise restraint over the alleged demolition of a Mosque in Rivers as relevant stakeholders were handling the matter with the State Government.

The council also advised Muslim women to always exercise their rights of wearing their hijab.
