Gov Matawalle urges religious leaders to preach peace, good conduct. Zamfara State Governor Bello Mohammed Matawalle has urged the Ulama to step up their advocacy for the state’s residents’ well-being and civility.
The Governor made the appeal after having Sheikh Aminu Daurawa Kano, a well-known Islamic cleric, in audience at his office.
According to information obtained by DAILY POST, the Sheikh went in Zamfara State to advocate for peace there and to offer special prayers for peace.
Governor Matawalle acknowledged that Zamfara State faces several security-related issues, which his government is tackling head-on, and said that everyone must pitch in to stop nefarious activities.
He bemoaned, “The sort of findings I have made over time which, always, aggravate the security difficulties in the state, are best envisioned with the depth of behavioral rot in the population.
We detained a guy who eats human remains and also sells them to ritualists both inside and outside of Zamfara state. No less than 13 people connected to this horrific enterprise have been detained by us so far.
Sheikh Daurawa earlier praised Governor Matawalle for his practical measures against banditry and other types of security breaches in the state after being welcomed by the Governor and the state Council of Ulama.
He counseled Muslims in the state to embrace Islamic teachings, which consistently uphold the purity and oneness of God, in order to lessen suffering, stressing that turning from sin and providing aid to the poor would put a stop to banditry activities.
