Kaduna - Governor Babangida Aliyu of Niger State in Kaduna condemned the activities of members of Boko Haram, saying that it is un-Islamic.
Aliyu, who is the Chairman of the Northern Governors Forum, said this at the international conference on Security and Development Challenges of Pastoralists in West and Central Africa.
According to Aliyu, Boko Haram is un-Islamic and the right Jihad in this 21st century is the one that improves the standard of living rather than seeks to destroy lives.
Islam is about moderation and not extremism. Jihad is about how to make peace and life better, not how to kill people.”
