Jama’atu Nasril Islam under the leadership of His Eminence, the Sultan of Sokoto and President-General, JNI, Alhaji (Dr) Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar, CFR, mni, received with bewilderness the news of the bombing at Unguwar Yero – Malali, Kaduna, which happened on Sunday 28th October, 2012 at a Church during the Sunday service. We condemned the act in its totality and call for calm and restrain.
It is our prayers that the perpetrators behind the act will never succeed in causing chaos in Kaduna.
However, we implore the security agents to be more vigilant and intensify measures of curbing this dastardly act of bombings. As for those affected, we pray for a better return of what they have lost and also the families of those who lost their lives, may Allah grant them fortitude to bear the loss.
