Sultan Of Sokoto Slams Kano Blasphemy Killing – An Islamic group headed by the Sultan of Sokoto has slammed the killing of Mrs Bridget Agbahime in Kano state.
The Jama’atu Nasril Islam (JNI), in a statement through its Secretary-General, Dr Khalid Aliyu, condemned the criminal act and prayed for peace.
The statement read: “The unfortunate incident was reported to have happened in Wambai Area of Kano, Kano State. It is hardly believable that such dastardly act could happen in the name of religion, considering the various enlightenment programmes on interfaith and mutual co-existence being put in place by Muslim scholars and the leadership.
“We, however, commend the various efforts of the Kano State Government and the Ulama in nipping the unfortunate crisis in the bud, which will have escalated. We commiserate with Mr Agbahime of Deeper Life Bible Church of Kano over the death of his wife as a result of injuries she sustained in the fracas that ensued between her and the hoodlums.
“We also want to commend him for swiftly setting the record straight against all odds, by stating that his wife was not beheaded as reported by the media. We urge Muslims and Nigerians in general to pray fervently for the restoration of peace and security in the country, bearing in mind that without Nigeria there will be no Nigerians.
