JIBWIS Calls for Investigation into Murder of Islamic Cleric

The Zamfara Chapter of Jama’atu Izalatil Bid’a Wa’iqamatis Sunnah (JIBWIS) Urges State Government and Security Agencies to Investigate the Death of Islamic Cleric Mallam Abubakar Mada

Its State Chairman, Dr Na’Allah Zurmi made the plea while addressing Newsmen in Gusau on Wednesday.

He said: “We are shocked to receive the news about the dead of our brother and colleague, especially the way and manner he was murdered.”

Zurmi said the sect was looking forward to seeing what the Zamfara state government and the security agencies would do regarding the investigation and prosecution of the culprits.

This, according to him, is to ensure justice for the family of the deceased and JIBWIS.

Zurmi warned followers of the sect to desist from taking the law into their own hands, assuring that JIBWIS leadership at both state and national levels were doing everything within the ambit of the law to seek redress on the matter.

“We are strongly warning all to desist from any act capable of breaching peace in the state,” he advised.

Also speaking, Mallam Mustapha Dumfa said it was not in the habit of Muslims to take the law into their own hands.

“Therefore, we should all calm down and allow the legal process to take charge towards administering justice to the matter.”

Mallam Abubakar Hassan was picked up from his residence by unknown persons on Tuesday evening and was later found dead.
