Popular Nigerian Islamic cleric, Sheikh Abubakar Gumi, has lamented over the many human blood being spilled continuously in the Nigeria. ayokinews.com reports
Sheikh Gumi made this known while speaking at a peace conference organized by Center For the Advancement of Human Dignity and Value (CAHDV) on Thursday in Kaduna, where the Islamic cleric asked why nothing is being done to stop the continuous bloodshed in the country.
He blamed the lack of proper religion doctrine, knowledge as the cause of the rising insecurity in Nigeria and that “enlightenment” is the cure to the security challenges in the country.
Sheikh Gumi said, “I realized one thing; lack of religion, lack of knowledge; ignorance is the cause of insecurity and enlightenment is the cure. When you enlighten them, you can cure them. When you want to cure the problem the way it was created, you go into bloodshed and this is exactly what we are witnessing now.
“What we see today is lack of civilization. Too much blood is flowing in Nigeria unnecessarily and we have not yet understood the human dignity and value both the leading and the led. Man has value and dignity, you cannot force your religion on anybody. Why is blood flowing too much in the country?”
