JNI warns against politicising security issues
The apex Islamic body in the North, Jamaatul Nasril Islam (JNI), has warned Nigerians against giving security issues religious, ethnic or political outlook.
The Secretary-General of the Islamic body, Dr. Khalid Abubakar Aliyu, gave the warning in a statement yesterday, saying that criminal acts are crimes and their perpetrators must be dealt with as criminals.
“It doesn’t matter whose ox is gored. Issues of security must be accorded all the seriousness it deserves at all levels.
“Nigerians must be careful not to politicise security matters, trivialising them or basing them on ethnic, religious or regional lines,” the statement said.
