Don’t take up arms if provoked, Sultan of Sokoto urges Muslims, Kayode reacts
Chief Femi Fani-Kayode has reacted over statement by sultan of Sokoto, Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar III urging Muslims to be peaceful and resist to be provoked to taking up arms to fight over any situation or remark made by anyone within the country.
The Sultan made this assertion at the opening ceremony of the 108th edition of Islamic Vacation Course (IVC) at IVC permanent site in Ogun State.
According gathered reports, the Sultan who spoke on Islamic law and the Nigerian constitution, stated: “We must not take up arm over any issue or anybody.
“We must never try to fight, we must not enforce our rights on anything. But we as a leader, all of us as leaders, we will look at ways of getting our rights from the government”
The Sokoto state monarch urged that taking over arms will not be the best way Islam orders, but an approach for the enemies to destabilize the country.
Reacting to this assertion, the former minister identified that if Christians had responded to persecutions and violence they have underwent over time by taking on arms, Nigeria would have burnt to ashes.
The PDP stalwart on his Twitter handle on Saturday said: “Muslims won’t be provoked to take arms”-Sultan of Sokoto
“If Christians had decided to take up arms & retaliate against the violence, aggression & provocation that we have been subjected to over the years, Nigeria would have burnt to ashes by now. Ours is a peaceful struggle”.
