The Jama’atu Nasril Islam (JNI) has “condemned in the strongest terms” Monday afternoon’s bomb blast that killed over 60 people in a luxury bus park in Kano.

In a statement signed by its Secretary General, Dr. Khalid Abubakar Aliyu, the body, which His Eminence, Alhaji Sa’a Abubakar, the Sultan of Sokoto, as President-General, berated perpetrators of the heinous act, urging government to take immediate steps to track them down and bring them to justice.

“This new trend of bombing at a Motor Park, and the killings that ensued, on innocent people that gather to travel to various destinations, at New Road, Sabon-Gari, Kano, Kano State on Monday, 18th March, 2013 is disturbing and alarming,” JNI said in the statement, a copy of which is in the possession of News Express.

“Similarly, the gun shot at a female Police Officer, a Divisional Police Officer (DPO) in Kano, Kano State on Tuesday, 19th March, 2013, is also condemned. We therefore, call for calm and restraint. The situation is very worrisome, and calls for more concerted efforts and strategies of averting such ugly situations,” the group added.

According to JNI, “More so, our concern is why was the park targeted? It seems there is a design to set the entire North on crises and by extension, the whole country, starting with Kano, after witnessing relative peace in the region. May Allah, the Most High save us from the enemies of peace and development, wherever they may be. Amin.”

The group called on “Governments at all levels to as a matter of urgency nip in the bud future re-occurrence and the perpetrators of these barbaric acts be brought to face the wrath of the law. As human lives are sacred and must be treated as such, in line with the teachings of the revealed books.”

It at the same time called “on all Muslims to fervently engage in prayers that will bring an end to these nightmares of insecurity in our great country.”
