Mallam Nasir El-Rufai, Kaduna State governor has called on religious leaders to put an end to Southern Kaduna killings.
While speaking on Saturday when he received the National Chairman of Jama’atul Izalatul Bid’ah wa Iqamatul Sunnah, Sheikh Abdullahi Lau and other Izala leaders, the governor stated that the reckless statents of those religious leaders are the root cause of the crisis rocking the state.
He disclosed that the visit of the Izala leaders is to be briefed on the security situation in Kaduna State.
El-Rufai also noted that the state has solicited their support and prayers to end the incessant killings in the state.
He said, “We also solicited their support and prayers to see the end of this crisis, because we are of the strong view that at the bottom of this crisis are the reckless statements of some religious leaders.
“If religious leaders decide firmly that people should live in peace and preach that consistently, it will lead to peaceful coexistence in our state.”
The governor who lured the crisis in the southern part of Kaduna to the religious and ethnic differences, urged the leaders of those religions to use their position to end the indiscriminate killings.
