    Nigerian military plotting to eliminate Muslims -JNI

    The Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar-led Jama’atu Nasril Islam on Monday in Kaduna State raised the alarm that the Nigerian military are out to wipe out the entire muslims in the name of fighting terrorism in the land.

    The JNI insisted that Nigerian muslims, especially in some Northern parts of the country were now considered a danger species, expressing concerned over the dimension of extra-judicial killing of Muslims in the country.

    Secretary-General of the JNI, Dr. Khalid Aliyu, in a statement on behalf of the religious body in Kaduna on Monday also noted with sadness the incident of Keana 15 in Narasarawa state where a settlements of innocent Muslims were mercilessly massacred.

    According to the JNI, the various reports of massacre of Muslims by the military in Borno, Adamawa and Yobe states under the guise of fighting terrorism were unacceptable.

    The JNI said, “the dimension of extra judicial killing of Muslims by the Military on a mere whim of unsubstantiated suspicion leaves much to be desired, which clearly depicts that Muslims have become endangered species, murdered and maimed indiscriminately in the guise of fighting terrorism.

    “We can say without any fear of contradiction that there is a grand agenda to destabilize the Muslim Ummah in Nigeria. If any Nigerian is in doubt regarding the hidden grand agenda to destabilizes Muslims in Nigeria, and cautiously reduce their rising human capital, then the Zamfara State incidence should have removed this doubt.

    “An event where vigilante personnel working to restore peace would be the subject of a grand massacre, tells much about the chaos and insecurity some enemies want to push our states into. We call on all our Governors, politicians and indeed every well-meaning citizen to do something before it gets out of hand.”

    The group added, “where is the human rights compliance and rule of engagement by the military personnel involved in maintaining peace and security? Why are the defaulting military personnel not brought to book for deterrent and forestalling future occurrence?

    “The military should know that it is extremely dangerous to polarize security agencies along religious line. It will have far reaching negative effect in the country, especially at this material time, where the efforts of all are required to cushion the effect of the pains we are passing through.

    “JNI unequivocally condemns the extra judicial killing of 15 Fulani Muslims in Keana, the raping and subsequent killing of Binta Usman, the milk maid and all the human rights abuses on innocent Muslims in Maidugri.

    “We strongly call for bringing to justice the perpetrators of transgression against innocent citizens who have the right to practice the religion they choose.”
