Muslim community debunks attack on Christians in Kwara State

The Chairman of Alfathiu Quarib in Kwara State, Malam Oniye Abdulrasak, said the association had harmonious relationship with the Christian community.

He dissociated the organisation from any attack on any church.

He also commended some Christians who came to the rescue of a Muslim lady that was being raped.

The Vice Chairman, Quareeb Society, Ilorin, Abdulrasak Oniye, had in an interview with journalists said Muslim faithfuls were also attacked.

He added that if it was an attack against Christians, some members of his group would not have fallen victims.

However, the Kwara State Governor, Alhaji Abdulfatah Ahmed, assured Kwara State residents of his readiness to deploy the law and public funds to achieve peace, unity and progress in the state.

Ahmed, in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, AlhajiAbdulwahab Oba, after separate meetings with the leaderships of CAN, Kwara State chapter, and Quareeb Association, urged religious bodies not to allow “miscreants” to cause disaffections among religious adherents in the state.

Ahmed said, “Anyone who participated directly or indirectly in the public disorder shall be brought to book.

“This state is a state of harmony. We must all work to sustain our cherished peaceful environment. Don’t play into the hands of mischief-makers by labelling the activities of miscreants as a religious issue. The benefits of unity are too many to allow them to slip out of our hands.”
