The Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar and the governor of Oyo State, Senator Abiola Ajimobi, have called on Nigerians to dissociate terror grooup Boko Haram from Islam.
They both said this in Ibadan, on Friday, while inaugurating the Bodija estate and environs Muslim Community Islamic Centre.
The Sultan said Islam was a religion of peace, hence the need for Muslims to continue to live peacefully with non-Muslims in their respective domains.
He urged Muslims to always emulate the act of Prophet Mohammed in their daily activities.
Also speaking, Senator Abiola Ajimobi, also denounced the public misconception of associating terrorism to Islam, stating that it is a religion of peace.
He therefore enjoined communities to always play active roles in Islamic activities for the development of the religion, stressing that, whatever they did here on earth, especially building of mosques, they would reap the benefits hereafter.
