The Chief Imam of Abuja National Mosque, Dr Muhammad Kabir Adam, on Friday, appealed to all Nigerians to disclose the hideouts of bandits, terrorists, kidnappers and other criminals terrorising the country.
This, the cleric said, would help the Armed Forces and other security agencies fighting insecurity.
Dr Adam stated this in an interview with Defence Correspondents shortly after the special Jumat Service prayers organised in commemoration of 2022 Armed Forces Remembrance Day.
”I call on all Nigerians to supply the significant information, intelligence information on the hideouts of criminals wherever they are. This is a support to our Armed Forces. Of course, when we do that, despite the fact that it is difficult, but we have to do it, to support them, so that they can carry out their works,” the cleric said.
Dr Adam explained that Friday’s prayer was set aside to remember Nigeria’s fallen heroes who sacrificed their lives in defence of the country’s territorial integrity and ensure peace returns to the land.
He added, ”The prayers and the khutbah address all Nigerians to always pray for Armed Forces to succeed no matter the challenges. At the same time, the khutbah addresses the entire Nigerians to repent to do good in their lives, so that Allah in his infinite mercy, will now look at us in the eye of mercy to come to an end the security challenges we are facing in this country.
”Their success is our success. So, we pray to Allah (SWT) to strengthen the Nigerian Armed Forces as well as all other security agencies under the leadership of C-in-C, our President, Muhammadu Buhari to continue to strengthen him, increase his health and wisdom to continue to steering this country.”
