Deborah Samuel: MURIC Condemns Attacks On Churches, Others

The Muslim Rights Concern, MURIC, has condemned alleged attacks on churches and other property in Sokoto State on Saturday.

There were several reports that pandemonium broke out in some parts of Sokoto State on Saturday following a protest by some citizens who protested the arrest of the alleged killers of Deborah.

Reacting in a statement signed by its director, Prof. Ishaq Akintola, MURIC urged Nigerians to take examples from the ongoing war in Ukraine and the current situation in Ethiopia.

Prof. Akintola who noted that the attacks were the handiwork of hoodlums and unscrupulous elements, appealed to Nigerians to desist from reprisal attacks on non-indigenes in other parts of the country.

According to the statement: “The Sokoto imbroglio boiled over yesterday, Saturday, 14th May 2022, as hoodlums attacked a church and looted some shops.

“We strongly condemn the attacks. The fact that the Sultan’s palace was also targeted showed that the whole saga was the handiwork of unscrupulous elements. Muslim leaders knew nothing about it.

“We urge every Nigerian to shun violence of any sort. We will gain nothing by towing the path of mutual destruction. The cities of Ukraine lay in ruins. They serve as recent examples and living testimonies for all of us. Guns are still booming in Ethiopia. Peace continues to elude Southern Sudan.

“We commend the governor of Sokoto State, Aminu Tambuwal, for quickly declaring a curfew in order to bring the situation under control.”
