Insurgency is part of God’s punishment to Nigerians for our sins – Sultan of Sokoto

The Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar lll, has said that the insurgency ravaging the country is God’s way of punishing Nigerians for disobeying his words.

DailyTrust reports that the monarch said this when he spoke at the 5th International Conference on “Love and Tolerance: Countering Violent Extremism for Peaceful Coexistence” in Abuja.

The Sultan, who was represented by the Emir of Jiwa, Dr. Idris Musa, said Nigerians were living in sin and have refused to abide by the teachings of the Quran and the Bible.

He expressed dismay over the spate of insecurity in the country, lamenting that it had got to a stage where the rich were avoiding the poor.

“The security challenge is our problem. The Holy Quran is a message to mankind. The Hoy Bible is a message to mankind. If we cannot listen to what the Bible and Quran have taught us and we continue in our bad ways, what do we expect?

It is part of the punishment we are receiving based on our sins. If we can stop committing sin and abide by God’s words, things will change.

I thank the UFUK Foundation for trying to unite the world to become one and love each other. Today, we are in a situation that most of us do not love each other. This is wrong, we are created in the same way and we are brothers, no matter the situation and religion.

We are appealing to everyone to live together and be our brother’s keeper and live in harmony. We should not create problems for each other,” he said
