The Ansar-ud-deen Society of Nigeria (ADS) has pleaded with the ferocious Boko Haram sects to eschew violence and embrace peace.
This was delivered in a statement signed by its Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Muibi Adebanjo, and made available to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Ibadan on Saturday.
The society acknowledged the Muslims for the successful completion of Ramadan and urged the Islamic faithful worldwide to embrace the righteous ways displayed during Ramadan.
It noted that the nation cannot develop nor grow in a situation of insecurity, and charged the insurgents to sheathe their sword and make its agitation known to the government through dialogue.
The Islamic organization commended President Muhammadu Buhari for his approach to duty, and appealed to Nigerians to be patient with him.
