Many Muslims all over Northern Nigeria have written to condemn Sheikh Abubakar Salihu Zaria for his fiery and inciting sermon of wihch he was seen on video telling his congregation that he was sending a message to the Pagans of Jos, Christian Association of Nigeria, Jos, and CAN, Nigeria.
In the video, responding to the killings of some Muslims who were recently killed in Plateau as they travelled from Bauchi through Jos on their way to Ogun, Sheikh Salihu Zaria warned that they would block the main road from Yobe to Gombe, Bauchi to Katsina and kill Christians if the families of the deceased were not compensated and if such happens again.
He lambasts Muslim leaders in the North for not representing the people. He also lambasts Sheikh Pantami for sitting on the fench and not talking.
The angry Sheikh Zaria also claimed that Muslims were more than the infidels in Jos in terms of number, “let census be conducted,” he shouted.
The issue of population between the Hausa/Fulani Muslims and the indigenous people and how to share the political positions in Plateau State has been at the bottom of the conflict in Jos.
When this video was posted on social media however, Muslims wrote from all over the north saying the preacher doesnot represent Islam or Muslims, but is on his own.
