Mai Mala Buni condemns Jos killing

The Governor of Yobe State, Mr. Mai Mala Buni condemns in strong terms the killings of Muslims travellers passing through Jos. Mr. Buni wrote that:

“We are indeed saddened and have condemned in strong terms the sad and unfortunate killings of our innocent and law abiding brothers in Tijjaniyah movement who were returning home after attending the annual ZIKR (Prayer Session) in the Zawiyah of our notable Sheikh and father Dahiru Usman Bauchi by some militia in Jos, Plateau State. This act is inhuman, barbaric and unwarranted. We therefore call for security officials to investigate the cause for this mindless attacks and bring the perpetrators to book.

“As we commended the proactive measures taken by the authorities in Plateau State to forestall further breach of law and order, for security agencies to fish out the perpetrators for prosecution. We call on the people to stay calm and not to take laws into their own hands.

“We also commiserate with the families of all those who lost their lives in the unfortunate incident, and also condoled with the renowned Islamic Scholar, Sheik Dahiru Usman Bauchi and prayed that the Almighty Allah will give their families and other Nigerians the fortitude to bear the great loss. Ameen ya Rabb.”

Mr. Buni made this statement when he visited Sheik Dahiru Usman Bauchi. The Sheikh had flew to Abuja to see the president after the incident. Mr. Mai Mala Buni was with his Kebbi State counterparts.

Many people have condemned the incident but have criticised the president and politicians trying to cash in on the incident that they should have talked when people were being killed in Miango in Jos that triggered the attack on the travellers.

Meanwhile they have been retaliatory attacks on travellers passing through Bauchi Road by Muslims.
