"Blame game is not a solution to the menace but we should forge ahead and give the security agencies maximum cooperation to end it,’’ he said.

Nafi'u noted that combating insurgency was not a simple task, adding that it needed the cooperation of all as everyone was being affected by it.

"Boko Haram terrorists are not Muslims and are not practicing the true teaching of Islam, which preaches peace, love and development not killing of innocent people,’’ he said.

The Cheif Iman commended President Muhammadu Buhari for his commitment to the fight against Boko Haram, saying, ``If this will continue the issue of Boko Haram will be history.

"President Buhari need our support and commitment in ending the menace; we should all give him total support in combating the terrorists.’’
