Metro Boko Haram: You Can't Bomb Your Way to Paradise, Says Sultan of Sokoto




Sultan of Sokoto and president-general of the Nigeria Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA) Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar (III) yesterday declared that life is sacred, thus anybody who bombs himself thinking he will go to heaven is delusional.

The Sultan, who said this yesterday when he hosted security chiefs during the breaking of the Ramadan fast in his palace in Sokoto, further explained: “For us, one single life lost means a lot to us because life is sacred. You cannot love God if you do not love your neighbour and if we all agree that you cannot love God if you do not love your neighbour, then why are we having all these problems?” the Sultan asked.

While adding that the dreaded Boko Haram has now become a franchise used by many to commit series of crimes, the Sultan warned that any attempt to politicise the insecurity that is confronting Nigeria will not bring solutions.
