2 Min Read

Jama’atu Nasril Islam (JNI) has condemned the bomb explosions that rocked the Gombe Central Market on Thursday and the Eid praying ground in Damaturu on Friday.

In a Statement signed by the Secretary General of JNI, Alhaji Khalid Abubakar Aliyu, JNI described the attacks as anti-Islamic.

The statement read ‘These evil and wicked massacres are coming few days after similar acts had occurred in various parts of the country.

“These continued savage attacks stand condemned in their entirety. Indeed those carrying out such acts are devils and whatever is their mission, may it be in futility and they be put to shame.

“As Muslims, we find solace that there is the day of requital which all souls shall account for their deeds. If not so, how can we be subdued to unnecessary pains and sorrows in a moment of joy like Eid-el-Fitr.

“We pray Almighty Allah would grant all the deceased forgiveness and mercy, while those that sustained injuries quick recovery.”

JNI also urged the government to act swiftly and proactively in order to solve the issue of insurgence in the North East.

Meanwhile Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has said that Nigerians are entitled to freedom of religion.

Wike said this when he received the delegation of Rivers Muslim Community who paid him a Sallah visit at the Government House in Port Harcourt.

He said “Every Nigerian is entitled to the freedom of worship. What is important is for all of us to pray for the development of the nation. We need to pray for the resolution of the security challenges in the country.”
