Emir of Kano tasks religious organisations

15 December 2015, 06:43

Kano - The Emir of Kano, Alhaji Muhammad Sanusi, has advised religious institutions and other organisations to refrain from acts capable of promoting violence in the country.

He gave the advice while receiving some members of the Shi’ite Islamic sect who visited him at his Palace in Kano on Monday.

The emir stressed the need for all Nigerians, irrespective of their religious or political inclinations, to desist from anything which could breach the peace in the country.

"The advice is necessary especially now that the country is fighting insurgency," he said.

The traditional ruler, who described the recent violence in Zaria as unfortunate, called on the people to always exercise restraint in order to ensure peace and unity in the country.

Sanusi also prayed God to grant eternal rest to all those who lost their lives during the incident while wishing those injured speedy recovery.

Earlier, the representative of the sect, Alhaji Aliyu Babba, had called on the emir to intervene in order to ensure the immediate release of their leader, Sheikh Ibrahim El-Zakzaky.
