Kukah: HURIWA Accuses BUK Imam Of Inciting Violence, Calls For His Arrest

Civil rights advocacy group, Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria, on Monday, urged the Department of State Services to arrest the Chief Imam of Bayero University, Kano, Sheikh Abubarkar Jibril, for allegedly inciting Muslims against the Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Sokoto, Mathew Hassan-Kukah.

The Civil Rights group in a statement by its National Coordinator, Emmanuel Onwubiko alleged that Jibril was captured in a viral video telling his Muslim followers to get the home address of Kukah and attack the bishop.

A 200l-level Home Economics student of the Shehu Shagari college of Education in Sokoto, Deborah Yakubu was on Thursday stoned and burnt to death by rioters for an alleged blasphemy of Prophet Muhammad.

Consequently, the police arrested two suspects which resulted to a violent protest by protesters who demanded their release and went on to vandalize, loot and burn traders shops, churches and residential apartments perceived to be owned by Christians.

Rampaging hoodlums also on Saturday torched and vandalized at least two parishes presided over by Kukah and it took the swift response of security operatives to stop any attack on the bishop’s personal residence.

HURIWA also in the statement accused Jibril of sponsoring the attack on Kukah’s parishes through inciteful comments on social media.

The statement partly reads “HURIWA is putting the Department of State Services on notice to hold Sheikh Abubakar Jibril accountable for the fatal mob attack on Kukah’s parishes on Saturday.

“In fact, we think the constant bashing of spokespersons for President Muhammadu Buhari against Bishop Kukah for being outspoken against anti-democratic practices of the government encouraged haters of truth and objectivity to target the bishop last Saturday.

“Jibril, in a trending video, erroneously accused Bishop Kukah of motivating Deborah to commit alleged blasphemy, threatening to deal with Bishop Kukah. Jibril then asked if his followers knew Kukah’s house and the listeners shouted, ‘Yes we do’. He is inciting them to attack Bishop Kukah.

“HURIWA charges the DSS to arrest Jibril immediately for questioning as the secret police had probed and persecuted the late deputy governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Obadiah Mailafia; and other vocal Christian leaders like Kukah himself.

“Anything short of the arrest of Jibril is sentimental and condemnable. Nothing must happen to Kukah. Nigerians are watching and are not fools.”
