The Sultan of Sokoto and President-General of Jama’atu Nasril Islam (JNI), Alhaji Muhammadu Sa’ad Abubakar III, has condemned the killing of a pregnant woman and her four children in Anambra State.

In a statement by the Secretary-General of JNI, Dr. Khalid Aliyu, the Sultan of said: “JNI has, with dismay, been observing the unchecked atrocities dished out to many innocent Muslim traders’ wares and animals.”

According to him, the senseless, barbaric and unprovoked killing of one Harira Jibrin and four of her children at Isulo in Orumba North Local Council of Anambra has shown how the country has degenerated under the current dispensation.

His words: “The attitude, in effect, depicts the most unfortunate high level of hatred and impunity. The JNI feels that it is high time the government acted, lest things get out of hand.

“While we commiserate with the families affected by the killings and abductions in Nigeria, we implore the Federal Government to synergise with state governments enmeshed in security challenges, for the restoration of law and order.”

The religious leader called on governments at all levels to do everything possible to curtail the situation and arrest those behind the killings in the South East “before it is too late”.

The lexis of the so-called unknown gunmen, he added, is no longer tenable. “They are known but ignored! Moreover, as we have always stated, governments should be seen as swiftly acting on security-related issues.
