Ganduje debars Islamic cleric, shuts seminaries for incitement
Kano State Government has debarred an Islamic cleric, Sheikh Abduljabar Sheikh Nasir Kabara, from preaching owing his mode of teachings considered too incendiary.
The state commissioner for Information, Malam Muhammad Garba, who disclosed this while addressing journalists Tuesday night, said the decision was part of the State Executive Council’s resolutions at its weekly meeting held at the Africa House, Government House.
Garba also announced that all seminaries run by the clergyman would be shut down pending investigation by security agencies.
He further stated that the council has directed all broadcast stations and social media platforms to abstain from airing of such enflaming preachings, sermons, propagation and any other religious discussions in the interest of peace and tranquility in the state.
The commissioner revealed the security agencies have been directed to ensure full compliance and take decisive action against any person or group found flouting government order.
