Coalition of Concerned Citizens and non-governmental organisation in Kano, has drawn the attention of the state government to the activities of some Islamic groups allegedly embarking on questionable moves in the state.

Coordinator of the group, Ibrahim Sulaiman, at news briefing in Kano, said urgent attention from government and security agencies is required to quickly nip in the bound a potential negative consequences that may be triggered.


Ibrahim reminded that the accused Ulama were responsible for the presumed wrong advice offered to the government which was held against the suspended Sheikh Abduljabbar Nasiru Kabara.

The coordinator warned the fake Ulamas are only formed by some like minds people, who use it as opportunity to suppress other rival religious groups.

Ibrahim, who wanted the government to be fair and just to all irrespective of their religious inclination, insisted that failure to be conscious of all interest may escalated needless tension.


He said:”Following necessary consultations with many clerics from various creeds of Islam and NGOs in Kano, it became apparent that many Ulamas disassociated themselves from the presumed coalition and also refrained from supporting it.

“From our investigation, it is lucidly clear that the so-called coalition of Ulamas and NGOs is not recognised by the majority of Kano’s traditional theological centres and lacks representation from Kano Muslim community. Therefore the claim by the coalition of having broad based representation of Kano populace is false and misleading.

“We hereby appeal to Kano state government, which placed the ban on Sheikh Avduljabbar Nasiru Kabara to unveil the truth about the conspiracies of a few individuals from almost a single creed to intimidate other Nigerians of different sectarian persuasions from practicing their religious beliefs according to their convictions, thereby depriving them from their constitutional rights.”


The group also called on security agencies to beam their searchlight on the coalition of Ulama and NGOs and its activities to ensure optimum security of the state and guaranty religious and other freedoms for all citizens, including Sheikh Abduljabbar.

It also called on the coalition of Ulamas and NGOs to regulate its activities within the constitutional framework of the country, so as to promote peaceful coexistence among citizens.
