Umbrella body of Nigerian Muslims, the Jama’atu Nasri Islam (JNI), has charged the Nigerian Government to do everything necessary to rescue the 200 school girls abducted by terrorists yesterday in troubled Borno State in Nigeria’s North-East.
JNI Secretary General, Dr. Khalid Abubakar Aliyu, in a statement issued his afternoon in Kaduna, North-West Nigeria, expressed consternation that such a dastardly act could take place under the nose of security agents enforcing the state of emergency in the Borno.
According to JNI, “The abduction of about 200 final year secondary school female students in Chibok as reported by the media is another shocking story regarding the unfortunate happenings in Nigeria, especially the north.
“It is quite unfortunate and, in fact painfully confusing, that despite the state of emergency imposed on Borno State for a long time with the attendant huge amount of resources earmarked for security operatives, and despite the presence of uniformed security men at checkpoints which are strategically located at closed intervals, this horrific act could still happen.
“JNI condemns this act of barbarism in the strongest terms and calls on the authorities concerned to put all the needed efforts to free these innocent girls and get them continue with their studies.
“We sympathise with the victims and their teachers and families at this traumatising moment and pray that Allah will end their agony in the shortest possible time.
“JNI also calls on all Muslims in the country to intensify Qunut and du’a so that Allah (SWT) will unveil and deal with all the perpetrators of these activities.”
