Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar III, the Sultan of Sokoto and President-General, Nigeria Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs, on Wednesday, said all “suicide bombers are going to hell.”
The monarch made this statement, while receiving popular Nigerian singer, 2Face Idibia, at his palace.
The Sultan said religions abhor killings, and that Islam and Christianity preach peace and love among their faithful.
According to him, no human being can claim to love God without loving his neighbour.
“Religion is a personal choice of an individual. Therefore, nobody can force any religion on anybody. Suicide bombers are going to hell,” he said.
He urged Idibia to continue using his talent to promote peace and peaceful coexistence among Nigerian youths.
The monarch also admonished youths never to allow selfish preachers and politicians use them to realise their inordinate ambitions.
Idibia had earlier promised to continue using his talent to promote peace and peaceful coexistence among youths.
