A group, Muslim Solidarity Forum (MSF), has ordered Catholic Bishop of Sokoto Diocese, Most Rev. Matthew Kukah to tender an unreserved apology to the Muslim faithful in the country and cease “malicious vituperations against Islam and Muslims” with immediate effect.
Failure to do these, the group said, the popular cleric must “quickly and quietly leave the seat of Caliphate”.
The group’s directive came a day after Kukah accused the Secretary-General of the Jama’atu Nasril Islam (JNI), Dr. Khalid Aliyu of trying to incite Muslims against him over his Christmas message.
It also came as the Department of State Services (DSS) warned of a plot to incite religious violence in the country.
Speaking on behalf of the group, its Chairman, Prof Isa Maishanu, gave the orders while reacting to Bishop Kukah’s Christmas message.
He accused Kukah of trying to causNIDSUG Senate President Faults Appointment Of Sole Administrator For NDDCe disharmony between Christians and Muslims in the state.
“In February 2020, he (Kukah) staged a demonstration in the heart of Sokoto over the killing of a single Christian priest, presumably, by the Boko Haram insurgents, but did not consider hundreds of Muslims, Fulani herders that were mercilessly killed by the Christian militia in Taraba state in 2018,” the group said.
Maishanu asked Kukah what he thought would be the outcome if the peace-loving Muslims of the seat of Caliphate, responded to his incessant provocative attacks on them and their religion like what happened in Kafanchan 1987, Zango Kataf 1992, Tafawa Balewa in 1991, 1993, 1995 and 2001, Yelwa Shandam 2004, Zonkwa and Jarkasa in 2011?”
