North apex Muslim body, the Jamat Nasir-Islam (JNI) has warned that Nigeria is heading to an unknown destination with the escalating security situation.
The JNI, headed by the sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Saad Abubakar says it is worried that bandits and terrorists are becoming bolder daily by operating in any area of their choice.
The organization, in a statement by its secretary general, Doctor Khalid Aliyu, on Monday, said it was becoming more worrisome that terrorists and bandits at times operated for eight hours without being challenged by security forces.
The Muslim body said that in some parts of Borno, Katsina, Zamfara, Niger, Sokoto states, several of their communities are now under the full control of bandits.
JNI calls for an invasion of enclaves of terrorists, bandits and other criminal elements by security forces, and dealt decisively with their informants.
It also wants operatives of the national drug law enforcement agency and other relevant security agencies to raid villages, tertiary institutions’ campuses, motor parks and recreational facilities which are being used to peddle hard drugs.
